    Default 1199a update

    I realize there are other threads focused on 1199a's but it seems like every thread becomes distracted in short order.

    We made it past the computer and I am watching daily for 1199a updates. Has anyone heard anything recently?

    The last word I had was over a week ago.

    Best of luck to everyone playing the waiting game.

    Red face Any new 1199a's

    The web has been very quiet. Are there any new 1199a updates out there? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Probably won't see any until the weekend. Or maybe they'll go back to the Tuesday updates from years past.

    Still nothing for us yet...no e-mail, no 1199a update, nothing. I'm guessing we made it past the computer since we haven't gotten a dear john but still...starting to get that bad old feeling from years past

    Still nothing for us yet either...no e-mail, no 1199a update. This has been the same way for the last three years. I even reduced it down to just one item to alow the cost benifit to look better.

    Question 1199A question

    Kurt, Brian, Earl or any of the other guru's might be able to answer this best, but are they sending all the 1199a's out at once or are they just sending them in groups? Seems to me like they do them in phases, so don't count yourselve's out yet! Keep the faith!

    Today we got our 1199A for a new pumper/tanker. This is our first grant since the program started so it sure feels good.

    Or go to Houston, TX for your CEDAP training. Lost luggage, computer problems, work issues at my "day job"--none will seem important as my FD puts their new PID's to work and my Haz-Mat team uses its HazMat ID for the first time!!

    Spend the quiet days looking beyond AFG.

    We received the 10 questions on August 14th. I found them on the 15th and sent them back in 15 minutes. They opened it the next day. Im still waiting on the 1199A. Im about to go nuts. We need a new engine in a bad way. I guess I am just impatient. Good luck to everyone.

    Barny, congrats on the 10 questions! When you get that new engine I'll be sure to stop by next time I'm up there for a softball game to take a look at it. Nothing nicer than a shiny new engine!

    You would have already recieved the DJ (about 2 weeks ago) if you had not made it past the computer. No DJ means that your application made it to Peer Review.

    The 1199A is the information required by the feds to set up for direct deposit for requested funds. The 1199A is also an indicator of a potential award and can come in 2 ways.

    1) If your department has not recieved a grant before you can check for the Update 1199A in the drop down menu (ACTION) of your 2007 application. If it's there that is a very good sign.

    2) If you are a previous winner, go to the application that you recieved your first grant. Go to the drop down menu (ACTION) and View 1199A. You will see a reference to the 2007 grant (along with other winning applications) with your application number. Again a very good sign.

    This again is an indicator of a potential award. If there is none, it doesn't mean that you will not be funded. It's a long process and could take time.

    You are in the ballgame, until you recieve one of those dreaded DJ's.

    Bugle, I keep hearing things like "You will see a reference to the 2007 grant (along with other winning applications) with your application number". When I look at our winning 2006 grant I see the 2006 app number. Will that number change to 2007 app number or will there be two numbers listed, the 2006 app number and the 2007 app number. I just want to make sure I not missing anything. I wrote the grant, but the chief gets the email notifications and I think I check for the update more than he checks his emails. Tell what I am supposed to see. Went for replacement of failing 5 inch hose and dry hydrant hardware.
