    Default SAFER award dates

    This is our first year applying for the SAFER grant. We applied for recuritment funding. Does anyone know when the SAFER grants are normally awarded?

    Thanks for the info.

    Probably October/November before they even start, and that's an optimistic thought since they started later this year with the delay in AFG.

    Submitted our Safer App this morning #524 I'm surprised there weren't more.

    I submitted app #344 Tuesday around 5pm CST.

    I've got one more to submit tomorrow, curious to see what number it will be.

    By the way, 53% less applications were submitted in 2006 vs. 2005 - it will be interesting to see if we have even less this year.

    In 2006 there were 1,727 applications and 258 awards thusfar.

    Submitted #905 at 0400 local, the website was down from 0200 to about 0340. I'm beat, but I didn't want to be trying this with minutes to spare like I usually do.
    Good Luck All!
