    Default AFG 1199As going out

    For those that have been awarded before, check the old 1199A for the 2006 number. For those not awarded before, check the dropdown for an Update 1199A link. Follow the directions and get that paperwork signed and up to DC.

    Congrats to all on the road to awards now, and good luck to those still in the hunt.

    Not yet, the 1199A has become more of the first step than the questions in recent years. They should be following shortly.

    So... I log into my grant application page.

    I just check the drop down box for the '06 grant?

    And if it only has the "View Grant" and "Grant/Revoke Access" is that bad?

    Just got home from the station at around 2345, decided to check my e-mail before bed. Received e-mail from Brian about 1199A info appearing so I went to the firegrantsupport.com site and lo and behold my 2004 1199 info had a 2006 number on it.

    Checked here for other posts for a few minutes, then went back to the AFG website just to look again and my 2004 number was back on display.

    At first my mouth just dropped open in disbelief, but then I clicked on the 2006 box and was suprised to see an update 1199A box appear. This was a few minutes after midnight. So I guess things are really starting to move fast.

    For the second time this year my thanks go out to Brian for his help and to everyone on this board for all of the valuable and up to date info.

    Default Last Legislative Hurdle Cleared

    The last legislative hurdle, that has been holding up the 2006 AFG Award process, was officially cleared this morning with this posting in the Federal Registry.

    http://a257.g.akamaitech.net/7/257/2...6/E6-14759.htm


    This is the "beast" that has been keeeping things tied up for the past month and keeping everyone on pins and needles. 10q's and 1199a updates should start flowing like Niagra Falls duringthe next week for a first round awrad announcement before September 30 ( pessimistically guessing here folks). Start checking your email daily and especialy on Wednesdays adn Fridays, traditionally the days that DHS sends or posts the new requests for more information out. Answer your emails promptly without delay.Let the games officially begin folks. Ready, set, go!

    Heretic,

    It's early on in the process, so it's not a bad sign. If you have not won an award previously that is where you will be looking for the "Update 1199A" in the drop down menu.

    If you won an award previously, you need to go to that award to view the 1199A. Ex. you recieved an award in 2004, you must go to that grant and find "View 1199A" in the drop down menu. This is where you will find a reference number for 2006.

    Default I may be getting too excited ?

    I got in our drop dowm menu "Update 1199A"

    Is this a sign of good things to come for me ?


    I never received a grant before. We were 0 for 5 going in to 2006. We never got this 1199A form before.

    I am just wondering, hearing from other local winners in years past, When you get the 1199A form to file you are going to get the award ?

    We have not seen our number yet but can anyone tell me if there is a trend? Last year they did mostly if not all apparatus grants in the first round. is it the same this year or are they kind of mixed up?

    Default Couple of quick questions

    I did our dept. grant this year. Had to set up a new account as we could not log in to our prievous years applications. Here is one question: We were awarded a grant in 2004. Will I see the 1199A in the drop box or would I need access to the 2004 grant to see the 2006 number on that 1199A? Also, the e-mail account for the grant writer in 2004 is no longer valid, therfore cannot use the automated process. What would be the quickest way for me to get access to the 2004 grant?

    Thanks in advance.

    Email Helpdesk and they'll help you reset the password for the older apps. Don't forget to change the profile. The 2006 award is not currently related to the older apps, the UserID is the key. So odds are the old 1199A will not have a new number because the system thinks it is a different department. You'd have the link on the new login. I have several departments in that boat with old apps under an old login but 1199As under the new one.

    Cappy, each year is always mixed up, they just broke order last year and threw about half of the truck awards into Round 1. 87% of the 905 total awards were out by Round 3. The same is probably going to happen this year. It's because trucks take so long to build they were tired of handling all of the extensions. This makes it easier on everyone.

    Thanks BC! We did not apply for a vehicle this year. We still have not taken receipt for the vehicle last year. But I appreciate your response.
