    Question Question??????

    I noticed on the grant notice board that for fire trucks they show no dollar amount. Also how long do you have to spend the money. See we got 223,000 for a class A pumper and one of the companys says its goin to take almost a year just to build it. And whats the chances of getting another truck for the 05 grant if you got one with the 04 grant. See we have been letting some office in a town near us right the last 2 grants well our chief with no help wrote this one and got it so I think our chief is going to start righting them now.

    This was done so that the manufactuers can not start sending you unsolicited bids based on your award amount (or something like that).

    Also how long do you have to spend the money.
    Your performance period is for one year. If you have not expended all funds within that year, you can apply for a grant extension. They do not like to give them out for much time, so explore options with the successfull builder.

    And whats the chances of getting another truck for the 05 grant if you got one with the 04 grant.
    Most likely...non-existent. First reason, vehicle awards are very competetive with a lot of apps received and not nearly as much money budgeted. This year, previous vehicle award winners were not eligible to apply under the vehicle category again. This helps to spread out the awards and reach as many departments as possible.
