    Default MCI Trailer

    Was wondering if a Regional AFG Grant for a MCI trailer and truck would be possible.

    Would be for a county with over 12,000,000 visitors a year with all but around 5% arriving by vehicle. Of those arriving by ground, around 25-30% arriving by tour bus. In addition we have casinos with around 50,000-75,000 people in them at any one time, sometimes over 100,000 on the weekends. Another big factor, closest Hospital is 30 minutes away.

    Have not had a large scale MCI yet, but have come very close on numerous occassions.

    My question would be could that be funded in a regional Grant, and if so could we include the Truck, trailer and equipment.

    Thanks for the help.

    Tow vehicles are limited to $6000, otherwise the trailer and non-disposable equipment are eligible.

    To clarify that a little further, the $6k limit would be on staying within the equipment category. You could apply for a vehicle to tow it in your Vehicle app, but unless you make it a Priority 1 truck it won't even make it past the computer.

    Thanks for the help.

    So it would be under equipment if we just stayed with the trailer.

    Thanks again for the help.

    Default Regional vehicle

    Can we apply for vehicle under a regional application?

    Excuse me if I missed it in another thread. I know you can apply for two categories this year: Operations & Vehicle (yes technically 3 with regional)

    If you submit applications for both does the computer score your dollar amount request as 1 app or are both treated seperate? (i.e. for the purposes of cost/benefit)

    Both are treated independently of each other so no conflict in computer or Peer.
