Close Out Report Completed???
It was brought to my attention today that in North Carolina alone there are almost 200 Fire Departments that have failed to submit their Close Out Reports from previous years ('02, '03, '04). BE ADVISED - that NO FUTURE GRANTS will be awarded (including AFG for '05) to ANY department that fails to complete their Close Out Report.
These Reports can be completed by logging into your origional application and lower the menu under actions, scroll down and choose Close Out Report.
If you have any questions please contact your Regional Fire Program Specialist, who can walk you through this and answer any questions. It is important to make sure you have updated your email address so they can contact you about things such as these. Apparently, numerous reminder notices come back undeliverable.
PLEASE spread the word to the surrounding departments in your area that may be waiting for funding and may have open grants.
