    Default Application #'s

    Jack,
    I pulled up that 19,258 applications are in the computer of which based on your information, 9,781 have been submitted! I truely thought the server would crash with everyone waiting until the end again to work and finally submit their application!

    I guess they upped the total number from before. I thought only 14,000 some-odd had even been started according to USFA.

    This probably belongs in another thread, but anyone know of any departments that have either never applied or aren't applying this year after doing it in 2001 or 2002? Doesn't make much sense to not do anything with so much money being out there this year. Just like everything else, you can't win if you don't play the game.

    Hey Mikey601, where did you pull up the info on the number of applications started and submitted? I haven't been able to find anything on this for awhile. The last number I saw was 18K plus. Thanks for the help.

    Well, it looks like alot of cramming to get the 19xxx they had last year. Good for those that are done.

    I did som quick math, if they just take all the apps they get and split the money even between them and do what we needed with it, we could all get about $40,000.00.

    I no I no I just upset someone, somewhere. But hey to get $40,000. instead of nothing, would you agree?

    Well the Bozo Puter says that as of 21:00 hrs Central Time there is 20,201 applications of which at last post by ffemt1977, he submitted his as #12,027. This leaves a little over 8,000 applications to get done by 17:00 hrs Eastern Time. Glad I ran a hard copy just in case the server goes South!
    As for the post as everyone agrees to take $40,000, that's how much I put in for on the grant application! You get my vote!
    Good Luck to All!

    WebTeam is there any way you can get a confirmation on the number of applications submitted???? This would be greatly appreciated. The less number of applications submitted........the less hair I pull out.

    There was 20,894 being worked on, of which not all got submitted! A good guess would be 20,000 and would make it out that 96% got submitted! Twice the $$$$ and about the same # of applications submitted!

    Default Now, it's the waiting game.

    Not to burst anyone's bubble, rain on the parade or to sound negative, but the submitted applications must still meet the purpose and criteria of the grant program. The federal final rule is still there and that will not change.
    I hope everyone who submits is awarded. Unfortunately, that will not be the case.
    It's not lotto, but pretty damned close.

    The White Hat of Reason hit it on the head. It was already mentioned in several articles that many building modification proposals didn't meet the criteria. In addition to that, many victims of automatic canning were from spelling and arithmetic mistakes. Haste makes waste, so waiting until the last minute has probably claimed a few more victims unfortunately.

    I know of five departments surrounding us that wrote grants at the last minute asking for apparatus, and every one of those departments have several new rigs.

    We have asked for funding to buy scba, cascade, and fit testing equipment, what did everyone else ask for?
