    Default Will there be SAFER Application Period in 2006?

    I had read where SAFER grant funding was discontinued this year. However, recently I had heard through the grapevine that the SAFER Grants would be offered again this year.

    What is the true scoop?

    I talked with a FEMA representative about this a couple weeks ago, and he said that the money has already been appropriated for 2006, but it was cut from the budget for 2007. It may however be restored to the budget by Congress for 2007. In other words, plan on SAFER grants for this year, but its future is uncertain at this point.

    There's $110 million for FY 2006 for SAFER, appl. period probably after the AFG ones have been reviewed -- summertime like last year...

    For FY 2007 -- the pres. wants $293 million for AFG and nothing for SAFER.

    A letter was sent to the appropriate leaders signed by 136 Congressmen/women in support of more funding.
