10/14/05 No Fire Act Grant Awards Today
It would appear ( at least as of 0400 hours) that DHS is taking a break from announcing funding award rounds this week. No new awards have been posted for any Fire Act Grant programs. This is not surprising, considering that Monday of this week was off for them for Columbus Day and Yom Kippur starts today.
They ( and several of us as well) have really been "busting their humps" for over 90 days with all the award rounds, FP&S deadlines, SAFER reviews and the Gulf Coast disasters so, I would say the break is well deserved! DHS, enjoy a holiday. You guys have really been doing a great job this year considering what you have been up against. All of us can wait a week for you to get rolling again!
As a matter of fact, that does not sound like a bad idea for myself either. Where is my deer rifle and camoflauge? I'm headed for my deer stand! Time to "stock the larder" once again!

No AFG Award List This Week
Updated: 10-13-2005 04:25:42 PM
Department of Homeland Security announced there will not be a round of the Fiscal Year 2005 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFGP) awards this week. Grant awards are expected to continue after end of fiscal year 2005 bookkeeping is completed."When I was young, my ambition was to be one of the people who made a difference in this world. My hope is to leave the world a little better for my having been there."
