    Yes. Way too early. Unrelated.

      Hey......don't kill his enthusiasm. We need someone to be clicking every day to see when they post 1199 updates. He will have a good 3-4 month head start.

        Yes, been happening to a lot of 2014s since October or so. Nothing to do with this year yet. They probably haven't even printed the apps for Peer since it's still 6 weeks or so out.

            Thought I'd bump this post to the top for some added encouragement. Anyone know a time frame of 1199as?

              Peer review isn't until 3rd week in April, won't see 1199As until late May at best.

                Well, another step closer to awards friends. Peer review in session in Baltimore as we speak. May the Grant Gods smile upon you!

                  Wonder if they'll have stuff uploaded in time for everyone asking status questions at FDIC like they seem to do in years past, although Peer is usually more than 2 weeks prior.

                  Anyone else going to Indy to look at the shiny stuff and flashing lights? I plan on working up a thirst while I'm there.

                      Emails are all dated April 13th. Peer just started today so it isn't like they wouldn't know who made Peer and who didn't, and these are all computer denied letters. But hard to believe that a federal agency changed it's MO, almost easier to believe that someone spotted Bigfoot at Saks 5th Avenue than feds changing their way of doing things.

                      Of course we all have been collectively complaining that we wished denials came out sooner instead of waiting until close to the next application period, so might be a case of being careful what we wish for.

                        We still have vehicle grant, by now does that mean it's gone to peer review? We survived the computer?

                          If you didn't get an email with the FV in the subject then the truck made Peer.

                            Any word on when they expect to start technical review and award announcements? I know they just finished peer, just curious due to them wanting to move quicker this go around.

                              They still have about 1500 AFG apps. to read while they are reading Safer and FP&S apps. in Mid-May. Should start seeing Non-Affiliated EMS and possibility regionals by First of June. Jeff
