    Default Equip. priority ??

    4. Generally the equipment purchased under this grant program is:

    The equipment is necessary for the organization's basic mission, but has never been owned before
    The equipment will replace old, obsolete, or substandard equipment currently owned by your organization
    The equipment will increase your organization's capabilities within existing mission areas or to address a new risk
    The equipment will expand the capabilities of your organization into a new mission area
    The equipment will increase your organization's available supply of this equipment to meet basic mission


    We are requesting portable radios, we have a few, we need a few more. Do I have to categorize this as the last choice "increase available supply" or can I go with "increase your organization's capabilities within existing mission areas" ?

    the "available supply" is the obvious choice but the other would score better I would think.

    I would go with the "Increase mission area"

    Per the PG:

    Under the AFG, DHS will limit funding for portable radios to the number of seated positions based on the applicant’s firefighting vehicle fleet unless otherwise justified in the narrative, and only fund the number of mobile radios required to equip the vehicle inventory listed in the application.
    If this is your intent, then
    The equipment will increase your organization's capabilities within existing mission areas or to address a new risk
    would be the choice.
