          Anyone know if they were able to finish all the AFG peer review applications, or will they have to be completed later or combined with the peer review for Safer?

              If in fact, the remainder of AFG Applications will not be scored until April or May, can we assume that awards will not start until May or June ?

                Computer denials might possibly come out in April, 1199As possibly could start for those scoring 100s or 99s since it's not likely those will get bumped off the list. Reviews are traditionally done high to lower computer scoring so those they didn't get to probably can't get 99 or 100. Since this year was all caddywampus with the computer-based review & scoring before it didn't work right, who knows how everything is sitting but still can see progress being made on the highest scoring apps that were read even if it's not many yet. Just to get some movement handled so when the rest come through the full floodgate can open.

                  It has been entirely too quiet! Has anyone heard anything at all, or is everyone else just as clueless?

                    Since they barely scratched the surface on review thanks to the software/networking issues trying to do things electronically word is the rest will be done during the SAFER review next month. Possible that computer denials come out before then like they did last year.

                        The last thing I heard was that SAFER Peer Review was scheduled for April 22nd through the 26th. The remaining 2,000 or so AFG applications were scheduled to be reviewed April 29th through May 3rd.

                            They are finishing up with AFG and reading Safer this week. Be looking for something very soon. That's the last word I got yesterday. Jeff
