    Default Contact Update

    Last Friday I recieved upon checking the website to validate info for contatct. I have been told in the past by others successful grant holders that when you get this contact update this early it's usually followed by 10 questions. We applied for a new fire boat due to our dept having a $6.5 mil fire loss on the river had no way to get to the fire...We have 61 miles of riverways to protect .

    Not necessarily. I think the computer randomly generates that message. We recieved that message during the Fire Prevention awards, and were eventually DJ'd, however we recieved it again a month or so ago and got our Q's last week.

    I got my update thingie a few weeks ago - is it in fact a "pre sign?"

    Not the update. The 1199a and/or questions are the pre sign.

    That much I know, just talked to a few others and no one seemed to get the "update info" mail. Since you did and recieved your questions, I was curious if in fact it meant something.

    I got the update myself last week. They send them out every now and again to make sure that the person that is listed as the contact is still associated with the grant. Especially if there are multiple grants submitted over the years and the contact info hasn't changed. I wouldn't read anything into it, it's not a guaranteed indicator like the 10 ?s and the 1199A.

    True, but last year I got an update during the Fire Prevention award period and eventually got DJ'd. So, as BC says...I wouldn't read much into it until you get 1199'd or 10q'd.
