    Unhappy Grant Application Question

    Just recieved the Dear John, I'm not upset but just a little dispointed to have to wait this long to be notified. The question I have is... There was a question on the 2004 grant application that requested information on previous awards (see below). Does anyone know how much affect did this have on a grant application if you were awward in previous years.

    Thanks and good luck to everyone next year.

    "Please describe any grants that you currently have with DHS including the AFG, for example, 2002 AFG grant for vehicle or 2003 ODP grant for exercises. (Enter "N/A" if Not Applicable)"

    I got the same Dear John - I am not sure how that question may have applied to us - but several area companies have recd grants for the 2nd or more years in a row -

    We were succesful in 2003 - but not 2004

    Anyone that was awarded a vehicle in the first 3 years was ineligible to apply for another one in 2004. They were also looking for a continuation of the previous year's award, i.e, PPE one year, SCBA the next, or hose, tools, whatever. Any connection between applications that would indicate a lack of matching funds to have asked for it all at once.

    BC79er,
    If I understand you correctly, I should of told them that I was going to continue my 2003 award of SCBA's, because I applied for an air compressor to fill the bottles in 2004 application.

    We've been lucky enough to be awarded twice, every other year. A neighboring department has received a grant EVERY year. So receiving a grant did not keep them out. They do have a very good person writing the requests and his justifications are rock solid.
