    Default CEDAP Template

    Anyone happen to have a template for wording for the CEDAP grant? I am looking for funding for the Amkus stuff. Thanks.

    Not sure what you mean by template but if you mean you're looking for someone else's answers to the questions then you're probably better off doing something that might be productive, because you won't get anywhere with a grant app doing that. CEDAP more than AFG has to be department specific information. There is no template or specific paragraph to answer the questions with. A mastery of the English language is not needed by any means.

    Ex: Please describe how the selected CEDAP equipment will be used in a terrorism related critical incident management (?)11 mission. The response should address
    relevant Homeland Security National Priorities (?)12 and Target Capabilities (?)13.
    Note: The 37 Target Capabilities are available for review on this site. Click here to
    view the index to the Target Capabilities.

    How are the tools going to help in a terrorism incident in your area? Before this you had to answer what critical infrastructure you protected. So if a major office building collapses, how can the tools be used? Major rail incident, ship, car bombs, etc, etc. How would you use the tools related to homeland security, not everyday responses. That's how you have to go after CEDAP.

    Or, even easier...use Brian's (BC79er) services of grant writing assistance and training. Kurt (ktb***) and Alana (dixiechick***) are also in the business. All are frequent contributors here even though they do it for a living. All three know their stuff. Seems to me like ameryfire consults too, but i'm not sure on that.

    Word of caution--all three require their clients to provide accurate information and needs assessments. I did say "easier", not "easy"!! They also teach that there is no cookie-cutter solution, and i believe that to be correct.

    earl (i think Kurt and Brian have also been known as "easy" at times, but not Alana)

    No cookie cutter templates unless you want to end up like those Chief's in Ohio that got caught doing exactly that and are now looking at Federal Fraud investigations. Templates are a prescription for rejection guy, Contact me offline and I can help you out.

    Pipelines, trains, planes, trucking companies, manufacturing facilities, major financial & government buildings. Stuff like that. The things that would make CNN show up, or make a very large crater if it goes boom.
