    Default Still waiting on 10Qs

    I got an 1199 update request for one of two grants several weeks ago. I did get notice that the 1199 info was received on 6/20/08. I still have not received my 10 questions. Is that normal? This is our first year to apply and we are asking for turnout gear and a pumper. The 1199 update was tied to the gear grant.

    We are still waiting as well. I found this under in the program guidance for 2007:

    "Therefore, no less than $27 million of the appropriation must be awarded for fire prevention and safety activities. However, this is a minimum amount and FEMA recognizes the importance of prevention and safety projects. Therefore, FEMA has reserved a total of $32 million for the FP&S grants."

    Doing the math looks like we all have a really good chance!!!

    Good luck to all!

    $32 million!!! In doing the math I'd say we all have a good chance. . .

    Per the PG:

    The governing statute includes a requirement that no less than five percent of the appropriated funds support fire prevention and safety activities. Therefore, no less than $27 million of the appropriation must be awarded for fire prevention and safety activities. However, this is a minimum amount and FEMA recognizes the importance of prevention and safety projects. Therefore, FEMA has reserved a total of $32 million for the FP&S grants.
    Still the potential to award an additional $4.5 million.
