    Interesting note in the FAQs:

    What are the meanings of the terms new mission and new risk? What do they mean in terms of funding priority?

    New Mission
    A department takes on a "new mission" when it expands its services into areas not previously offered, such as a fire department seeking funding to provide EMS for the first time.

    New Risk
    A "new risk" is when a department is forced to address risks that have materialized in the department's area of responsibility; for example, construction of a plant that uses significant levels of chemicals could constitute a "new risk."

    Funding Priority
    Organizations taking on "new risks" will be afforded much higher consideration than an organization taking on a "new mission."

    New missions receive a lower priority due to the danger that an applicant will not be able to financially support and sustain the new mission beyond the grant performance period.

    Change in excess funds:

    Grantees may use the greater of 1% of their award amount or $5,000to continue, or expand, the activities for which they received the award.
    For the vast majority of us it will be the $5,000 amount. You have to have an award over $500,000 to see any increase over the $5,000 amount.
