    Nothing is definite until it's announced, but you're almost there.

    I know all about chickens, eggs, hatching and counting.....how many departments normally do the 10 q's and 1199a update without getting an award?

    As far as all the members on this forum go, no one has ever gotten an 1999a update AND the 10 questions and not received an award. There was an error last year that a few departments received 1199a I believe and it was a computer glitch and it was quickly changed by DHS. I think we were talking about 3 or 4 applications out of thousands.

    Default don't hold your breath.

    Got our 1199 in early September. 10 Qs a couple of weeks later. Finally got the reduction notice this week, and of course still waiting for an award. For those who are counting, that's three months since the first incling that we might get an award. So don't hold your breath. Pretend you never even applied for a grant. I'm growing old, losing hair and weight over this thing. And every year I say "Next year I give this to someone else." And every early spring I jump back in head first.

    Default 10 Questions

    I havent checked the site or this forum in awhile (its often too depressing) so I have forgotten, where do we look to see if the 10 questions have come? Is it on the website somewhere, or only in our e-mails?

    Most of the time they've been coming to the Profile's email, then if they don't get a response they'll send to the backup emails and then make a few phone calls. That's why it's important to check for the Update 1199A link, or the new number on an old 1199A. That way you know they're supposed to be coming and can ask DHS if they've been sent yet or not. Several folks had their 10 Q's get stuck in Spam filters, and DHS was happy to take the answers over the phone or resend them via email.

    We got the 10 Q's in the first week of October with nothing since. I called the helpdesk last week and was told to remain patient, the funds are being released slowly this year. I also was told that the rumor that was circulating about AFG not recieving the e-mails containing 10Q responses was false.

    Default Ask and ye shall receive...

    1) If you are selected for a grant award, would you accept?

    2a) If you are selected for a grant award, can your department meet the
    required cost-share?

    2b) How are you planning to meet the required cost-share?

    3) If you are selected for an award, do you understand that the funds
    can only cover expenses for one year and that you have to spend the
    funding within one year of your grant award date?

    4). If you are selected, do you understand that your department will be
    required to report to National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS)
    for one year commencing at your earliest convenience during the
    performance period of the grant? Nonaffiliated EMS organizations do not
    have to comply with the NFIRS reporting requirement.

    * If you need assistance reporting to NFIRS, you may call the support
    center toll free number 1-888-382-3827.

    5) Did you have any pre-award costs including the use of a grant
    writer?

    * If you used a grant writer, please fax a copy of the bank statement
    and canceled check (front and back) that was paid to the grant writer to
    the attention of the Grants Management Specialist that contacted you.
    Please include the following information: Grant # EMW-2006-FG-XXXX; FD
    name, city and State, and your name. The FAX number will be given to you
    once contacted.

    6) Do you have any changes to your point of contacts, phone numbers, or
    email addresses listed in your application?

    * If the primary point of contact has a new email address, please follow
    the instructions below:

    Using the same user name and id when you applied for the grant, log into
    https://portal.fema.gov. Once you are into the Status screen, you will
    select Edit Profile located in the top of the screen. Your next screen
    will reveal your personal information where you will see your current
    email address listed. Once you have edited the email address you will
    click on the Save button. You will then receive a confirmation screen
    that your profile has been updated but you are NOT finished ? you must
    click near the top left Authorized Applications. You will then click on
    Firefighters Grant link near the top left to ensure that all updated
    profile information is transferred through the system.

    7a) Do you have any changes to your DUNS number, EIN number or your
    banking information listed in your application?

    7b) Have you verified that the EIN submitted (pull EIN from system) is
    correct?

    7c) Are you sharing an EIN# with your city and/or county? If so,
    please name the parent entity.

    7d) Do you have authorization to use this EIN#?

    8a) Have you previously received a FEMA/DHS Assistance to Firefighters
    Grant?

    If you responded yes, please indicate what year(s) you were awarded, a
    brief summary of what items were purchased, a current status on the
    awarded grant(s) and the dates of their POP (Periods of Performance).

    * * * Performance on prior awards is taken into consideration when
    processing new applications. Closing out overdue AFG grants may
    facilitate further processing of your FY 2006 application.* * *

    8b) Have you received any other Federal funding this fiscal year?

    If you responded yes, please indicate the name of the agency that
    awarded you federal funding and a brief summary of the items that were
    awarded.

    9a) VEHICLE Applicants only : Do you understand that vehicle awardees
    will be required to include a Performance Bond as part of the contract
    with the vehicle manufacturer.

    **Extensions to a grant's period of performance may not be considered if
    a Performance Bond is not included in the purchase contract**

    9b) Do you certify that you currently have a comprehensive
    driver/operator training program (compliant with NFPA 1002) already in
    place or, if you do not have a comprehensive driver/operator training
    program and you are awarded a grant, do you certify that your Department
    will have a program in place within one year of the award?

    Again, this is not a notification of award; it is only a preliminary
    discussion of your application. Once I complete my review, and receive
    your favorable reply to this message, I will forward your application on
    to the next phase. If your department is selected you will be notified
    by e-mail through our on-line grants system. In that email, you will be
    directed to a website to print the award forms and other pertinent
    information.

    Well, we call them the 10 Q's because there used to be 8 numbers, with a 7a&b, and an 8a&b. This year they expanded so it's technically 15, but you have to remember this is the fire service and change is bad. So even if they get to 100 questions we'll still call them the 10 Q's.
