    Talking 1199A/ 10Q's / DJ's after Jan.1

    If anyone hears of any AFG updates after Jan. 1, please post.

    This site is pretty boring this week, my daily and sometimes hourly checks are not finding enough new posts to keep it interesting, no updates, no celebration, no whining, no fighting? What happened to the club?

    That's where I'm at, although with 1 client submitting app 349 on Tuesday it doesn't seem like many folks are pushing the button. I got 5 more to go, and still counting.

    We received our 10Q's + questions regarding Station Modification yesterday afternoon. Earlier in the day, our profile was requested to be updated. Now we have had our profile updated since the spring as we were closing out a previous grant...so we thought something might be up. 1199 update a few weeks ago.

    Speaking of grant numbers, Brian, you seem to be the statistics guru around here. What are the previous year's numbers on the FPS grant (i.e. number applied vs. # funded, etc)?

    Just curious,

    Last year there were 311 awards. They didn't print a hard number listing of total apps, just a chart. Best estimate I can guage from that is 5,000 apps. So a little skinnier chance at funding, but there's a whole lot less money available. Plus a lot of it gets eaten up by the national orgs for research projects, which in the long run are definitely worthwhile so not knocking them for it. Kinda hard to compete with projects that benefit the entire fire service in one shot by finding better PPE for us.

    I sincerely apologize to the OP for hijacking this thread, but do you think there will be less apps this year because of the new matching amounts? I know I had a hard time talking our chief into still letting me apply (since before it was "free" money (yeah, I know), and now we have to come up with some of our own funds).

    I would hope not. But when money is tight the first thing out the door is FP activities in most places, so could be the case. Of course that's why you find non-profit hosts such as firefighter associations and the like. Only FDs owe matching funds.

    Depending on the project of course. It still has to make sense for the host to be a host, not just a proxy.

    Cool Making an abrupt right turn back onto the highway..

    Steering the thread back to it's original course...lol...I'm betting (or at least hoping) next week there will be a bunch of 10Q's and 1199A's going out. What do YOU think?

    Might be something going on. The application web site is down. Either someone tripped on a network cable, or maybe they're making updates. Hopefully at least updates for the award announcement today, even better would be some new 1199As.

    Talking Another Explanation?

    I read on one of the posts that a lot of the fire grant support personnel were moving offices the last couple of weeks. So you suppose they are moving servers now too? I would have thought they would have notified us of an outage, but you would also think they would tell us if we didn't get an award !!! lol

    Default Dear John Letters

    In regards to new 199's I know that in December a lot of the Departments around here got their Sorry try again letters. I was under the impression that Congress had them under the gun to get things done by the end of the year. GUess I was wrong on that too.

    There is no set time between the 10 q's and an award announcment. At the minimum 1 week to who knows when. A local department is still waiting to hear, it's now 4 weeks. It's just a wait and see game.

    I rec'd my 1199 and 10 q's before Thanksgiving and no award yet, so to those just getting them, you'll need a lot of ice if you're trying to keep the bubbly cold. Waiting seems to be the name of the game!

    The site is back up, not sure what time it came back I was out and about. They did move offices, but not sure about the servers. Usually they're all in one spot with the rest of the department's stuff, but who knows. It works, all is good. Good would be better if they announced some awards or sent more 1199As. Haven't seen either yet today. Oh well, twas a short week.

    Thumbs up 1199

    Received 1199 today 1-8-07. I haven't seen the 10q's yet so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    Congrats, when you say you received your 1199 today, does that mean you checked an old app. and saw the 2006 number? Just curious as still no update on our old award and DJ. Is it safe to say that if the old award has no new number that we probably are not getting an award?
