      • COEMFD592 since their does not need to be a human to release the awards ( they are all computer programmed as to when to dump out) we are probably going to see another award round this week. Now the published award list is a different story as it is dependent upon a human and since they will all be celebrating the holiday it is unlikely we woudl see that published list of award winners till Monday.I was also told to expect more updating of 1199a's this week as well. Get ready to start clicking again folks.

                Yes there were I had a client get his SAFER today. AFG office is not in charge of posting the award list to the website so sometimes they are behind in getting it up.

                • Well we had a round of SAFER awards today so congratulations to those of you who got the Happy Dance letter today; the list is finally posted for today. Looks like AFG recipients are going to have to wait another week as no awards were given out today for AFG. So, sorry, patience all. They will get them done.

                    • Good afternoon, I am new to all this. I applied for a recruitment and retention grant. Is it a good sign if they asked you to update your 1199a? They have also sent me a confirmation back saying it is updated.

                        Get ready to do the happy dance guy, that is about a 98% assurance that you are about to get funded for that grant. Now remember it is a good indication, but it is not official until the send you the official award letter so don't go making press statements or spouting off that you have won just yet. You are basically at the point where you can "plan the party, just don't invite the guests yet". Congratulations to you and your department.
