        Unless someone out here knows what their userid and password is to their online applciation, none of us is going to be able to tell you that information. We would not have access to it. What makes you think they should be getting their award any day now? What is your basis for that statement?

          I know you guys got an 1199a update and the customary questions. I would assume you are in line as long as the questions have been sent back to FEMA. If they/you haven't sent the questions back, nothing will happen. Once they are returned it is up to where you scored as to when you will get awarded. I would say it is going to happen....be patient (easy for me to say as I know many are sitting laid off).

            More clarification emails have gone out to some prospective R&R awardees. No 1199As yet but good news isn't far off for some folks...

              would that suggest the end of the hiring questions and 1199 update requests soon?

                  They aim for rehiring/layoff prevention first, then additional positions, then R&R, but because some of the hiring end up not taking the money they circle around a bit. It's just like AFG, they mix things up between Ops, Vehicles, and Regionals so all the same aren't coming out at once. Same as the geographic mix in awards, they aim to not have all one area in an announcement.

                    After 5 years of no awards, we recieved an email from AFG stating our grant was favorably reviewed, 10 (actually 14 I think) questions attached. I checked and sure enough the 1199 was there. I know alot of people do not like the SAFER program but I think our department is in a great position for this grant!

                        • for two years until this funding runs out, Then what?
                          Safer is a short term band aid to proper funding mechanisms being put in place by the cities & towns.
                          Similar to what happened with the COPS program a few years back. Once the funding went away so did the positions.
