  • Little help please!

    I am lost my BC handed me a letter from FEMA, says dear AFG applicant: basically a bunch of political crap makes it sounds like they are giving me a DJ letter. OK i can live with that but after reading it 20 times it does not say I have been denied, even references my grant EMW-2010-03323. I have got no new mail on the portal. Please someone help.

    the letter is from AFG C/O McKing Consulting Corp. signed by Catherine Patterson AFG grant Admin.

    Kurt man sorry to hear about your back luck, i hope the best for you and your wife.

By far the biggest challenge for applicants is the competitive nature of those applicant. Hoplefully, the information below will assist you with preparing for future grants.

          The letter is explaining the reason(s) for the computer DJ that you previously recieved. These DJ notices do go to the portal. Check your old emails in the portal and look for an email dated 11/3/10. That is the date when the computer DJ's went out. Somebody saw the email as you have to submit a request to recieve an explanation from the AFG.

              Yep sounds like the Chief got the DJ, requested an explanation and then handed you what they said. Thanks for the words of encouragement, anyoen who knows me also knows I am one to never say die, so I just have to use my own advice to people and learn to think out of the box. I'll get through somehow.

                  ha!

                  after all this and pretty much giving up this year (2010) I got a 1199A update! Caught me off guard. My BC says I thought you said we got denied, well I could be wrong. So let me get this straight, got 1199A update and no 10 ?'s (yet), so I got a pretty good chance of getting an award?

                          Numbers match

                          Yes EMW numbers match, but we got a denial in 07 for scba comp cascade etc, and then reapplied in 08 for same, then they called and said they had left over money from 07 and wanted to know if we wanted to go ahead with out 07 proposal, uhhh yah sure or someting like that.

                            I'm confused yet intrigued by whatever you're trying to say.

                            Do you have a 2010 Award Number posted on your 1199A?
