    Default DJ-s ?

    We received a DJ on 6-10-08. Is there any special significance to receiving a DJ this late in the season?

    The farther you make it before the DJ the higher you scored. Ye olde close but no cigar story. They're getting a little better with the later DJs, so it may hold some hints on areas that didn't score as well as those sections on awarded grants.

    We are still "in" the FPS waiting game. We asked for a smoke trailer as an educational tool for our schools and elderly. So far we have not heard a peep from DHS about this. I am glad tomake it through the DJ rounds. Honestly with all the attention focused on AFG right now it is easier to wait. Where are we with the funding for FPS? How much is left?

    A rather large round today knocked the remaining funding almost in half, but there's still a good bit out there.

    $7,822,053 remaining.

    I don't think you have any more room on your 1199A screen for another one Mike...

    I'll work on it heading to PA/NJ/NY/MD/FL in a couple of weeks for vacation. Driving obviously. But in talks with the guys about making another round of workshops through KS & MO in one trip.

    Thanks SLY. We only need about $40,000 of that to cover our fire prevention education trailer. Looks like there is still some hope.

    SLY last week's round really took a big bite of the 2007 remaining FPS funding. Is the total budget for 2007 27 million? If so it looks like there is just under 3 million left. Boy, when I see all those 1,000,000 awards it makes our little $40,000 request seem so small. Do you think the remaining funds are all allocated to a few more big awards? We are still in the mix but we have not received an 1199A so it appears time may be running out for 2007.

    OK Jon here are stats comparison 07-06 FP&S so I guess it is my turn to play stats nerd here. Not going to make any conclusions based on it but.....

    2006 FP&S - Total money awarded $37 million
    Total Awards given - 228
    Total Awards over $500K- 26 ( 11% of total money)

    2007 (to date) -Total money available $27 million ( $2.8 million left to award)
    Total Awards given so far - 165
    Total Awards over $500K- 17 ( 10% of total money)

    IMHO, maybe one more round left! Never say die!!!!!

    We are still waiting and hoping to hear about funding for a smoke trailer to educate school children and the elderly throughout our area. I think the entire request was around $40,000.

    Isn't this waiting also known as "cruel and usual punishment??" When I cut my computer on instead of the box saying push "Ctrl, Alt and Delete" to unlock it says "You want to check that grant again, I reckon" - Yes still waiting..

    beginning to think after sending in our 10qs we will be forced to squirm until december. i understand grants people are busy with requests for money coming in now, but knowing that still doesn't relieve the anxiety one feels when you know award announcement will come out friday and your name isn't going to be on the latest listing.

    PG and PPT slideshow from last year say no less than $27mil, so at this point we're almost $500k over the allotment. Think at best maybe a couple in limbo will drop but the majority will be late DJs.
