    Eddie,

    Congratulations.

    A reply e-mail is exactly what you do. I copied the original e-mail into my reply and answered each question in bold.

    I know I'm not Brian or Dixie, but I figured I would get you some help so you can return them as soon as possible!

    Sly is on the nose, reply away. Just take enough time to do the Happy-Happy Dance so that when you go to type you're not hitting the same letter twice.

    Default Question

    Our Dept just got the Questions also, and I am wondering on how thurough do you have to answer them. This is our first attemp to this grant and we are in desperate need of the grant, so we don't want to screw this up.

    Thank You

    Default the ten questions

    When you get the ten questions do they come to the email address you submitted with your grant? Who does it say the email is from and what does the subject line say? Our chief did not write the grant but he is the contact person and I want to give him a heads up if we are lucky and get the 10 ????'s. Thanks

    Unless you tell them you either don't want the money or you're not going to report to NFIRS and follow NIMS, you can't screw it up.

    From the other forum:

    1.If you are selected for a grant award, would you accept?

    > 2a) If you are selected for a grant award, can your department meet the required cost-share?
    >
    > 2b) How are you planning to meet the required cost-share?
    >
    > 3.If you are selected for an award, do you understand that the funds can only cover expenses for one year and that you have to spend the funding within one year of your grant award date?
    >
    > 4.If you are selected, do you understand that your department will be required to report to National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) for one year commencing at your earliest convenience during the performance period of the grant?

    1: easy enough, YES!!
    2a&b:It does not matter how, or if you even have the money in hand. You have 12 months to get it.
    3&4: Yes
    5: Yes or No
    6&7: Make changes if necessary, otherwise No
    8a&b: This is a double check to make sure you're not buying stuff already awarded once by any grant program.

    The toughest part is trying to type while floating on Cloud 9.

    Congrats All! - Brian
