    Wondering why Safer awards were way down in 2007 over 2006 and 2005?

    Wasn't funding increased for 2007?

    Funding was increased to $115,000,000 for 2007.

    Awards are not really down, the SAFER award announcements did not start until last week with Round 1.

    Thanks for the info. I glanced at the 05,06, and 07 numbers and 07 was way down.

    Thought I remember reading that SAFER funding was increased for 2007.

    There has only been one round awarded thusfar, so there's plenty more to come.

    Doing the Happy Dance We received our 10 Q's for Safer this evening. Hopefully we'll see an award announcement soon. Ours was for Retention and Recruitment for a small volunteer fire department.

    Not sure if we will get a update or not. we also got an AFG award this year for $111,000 now $59,000 SAFER.

    We received an update profile last week (but we know that don't mean much at all)

    So your 1199 does not yet reference your SAFER award #?

    Check your 1199a for your AFG award in your drop down menu. See if it has your 2007 SAFER # listed on it.
