    Default Question about the 05' grants

    Ok, OUr dept. had applied to the Big grant (we call it the big grant) the federal grant in the beginning of 2005, we have heard nothing...not even a were sorry but you lose! now in 2004 we had applied and recieved the you lose letter or as i see some of you guys calling it the Dear John letter.
    We have not recieved anything about the 05' grant though nothing nadda zippo...basicly were a little nervous about going ahead and applying again and then for some reason end up with the 05 grant from some freak event, then were kinda screwed for 06.

    Any input from ya'll??? Thanks

    We are in the same boat. We have not heard anything on the 05 grant either. I contacted the FPS but won't tell me if we are still in the running or not. We got the letter confirming that they got the app. That is all. In 04 grant we got our letter telling us that they we unable to fund at this time. In September we got our 04 grant, with reductions, some is better then none. In the 05 grant we applied for the same with some additions. I know what you mean. Would be nice to know what up. We are looking to apply for the things we did not get and add 1 or 2 more things to it. If we end up getting the 05 before the 06 so be. Just more money for some other department(s) to get. If anybody else has input on this it would be great.
