    Default % of viable requests against federal funding

    This is a question for the gurus or any one else that might shed some light. What is the % of total requests for the AFG, or the total dollar amount of requests that are actually viable or eligible for funding. Someone has stated in the past that only 200% of available funding computer scored requests go before peer review. We all know not all requests are viable, either the request did not follow the PG or the Dept. requesting has not justified their request. No disrespect meant to anyone, but their is a difference between need and really want. If anyone has any info I would be greatful for your input.

    To expand further on the question. In 2006 their was $2,326,457,902 federal share requested. What out of that request would actually be able to be funded, following the PG rules, if the money was there?

    For 2006, $539,550,000 was allocated for award. Which means that approximately $1,079,100,000 in apps went to peer review (passed the computer). That's about 46% of the value requested. Then, the breakdowns begin...

    Up to 2% of the total is allocated to non-affiliated EMS, up to 25% of the remaining 98% (and the 2% EMS funding) is allocated to vehicles. So, my guess is that a similar percentage of the total reviewed funds is screened.

    What i would really find interesting is the number (and federal share request) of apps that didn't fit the program to start with. It would also be interesting to know the Priority 3 and Priority 2 vehicle requests. Not that it would matter, i just want to know.

    Looks like some nerd rubbed off on Earl.

    It actually breaks out slightly differently because 200% of each funding category is reviewed, not of the total award package. So around $220mil of fire vehicle requests were reviewed, $740mil of equipment, $4mil EMS Vehicles, $18mil non-affiliated EMS vehicles. This is the reason that proper project design is so important, and why it is also important to read your DJ not just for content but arrival date. All tell a tale.

    Actually the last line item is a maximum, not a minimum. Vollie/Combo are guaranteed at least 53.5% of the money, but career isn't guaranteed anything. Which isn't an issue according to DHS because career departments don't request near that much anyway. Plus most that apply don't have a problem showing need, and those that don't need don't really apply.
