      Great, and I have been watching for an 1199A update and yet to find one. Don't have a warm fuzzy feeling because there can’t be too many rounds.

        You'd probably be right about not having the warm-fuzzy feelings -- most of the previous few years had less than 100 FD Fire Prevention awards and those 1199As showed up all at the same time. Might be some small chance of an excess funding award, but I'm thinking alot of FY14 funds for all programs have been allocated. Certainly some trickling through late August, but by September it's all got to be entered.

            Hi Kurt,
            We received our 1199a for our FP&S on Friday 7/31, so they still may be trickling out.

              Was awarded FP&S in first round for $11,048 Federal funds for smoke alarms with 10 year batteries. This was our third FP&S grant. One for CO alarms and education program and now two grants for smoke alarms. I was surprised to see the award. Had been checking 1199a's did not see it and still can't find it. But we are happy to be able to continue our smoke alarm program.

                It will be listed on the 1199a from for the first grant you were awarded. On status page look to your first grant you ever got awarded and the new award number should be posted on that same 1199a form near the top in red. BTW- congratulations

                  Found it right where you said. Recent grant 1199a's had been listed with a 2010 grant. I expected any new grants to be added to that list. Seems strange that they went back to the first grant to list this one. Glad to get it.

                    Your welcome glad I could help. They print them there unless there is a change in anything on the form and then they will generate a new one and any grants after that will be listed on that one.

                      I think he was saying they listed it on his older 1199A rather than a more recent one. Happens every so often.
