    They will probably be so busy with faxes they will forget about the NOFA!

    Notice of Funding Availability, it is the actual document/order that allows the OMB to transfer the money to the AFG program to be disbursed to the winners.

    I am a little confused on the NOFA. I was assuming it was a final document that offically released the funding for the grants just before being awarded, but after doing some searching today it looks to me that the NOFA should have been completed before the application period even started.
    This is a quote from a firegrantssupport.com document I found "152.8 Application submission and deadline. In each year that this program is authorized and receives an appropriation, we will announce the grants availability via Notice of Funds Availability. That Notice will contain all pertinent information concerning the eligible funding activities, funding priorities, funding levels, application period, timelines, and deadlines"

    If this is the case it looks to me that the OMB is a lot further behind than I thought. Am I reading this correct? Did they get the cart before the horse?

    No, there's more than one piece to it. There's the piece that identifies that the money will be there, then there's the piece that says that whoever needed it reserved can have it. That's the part we're stuck on.
