    Don't worry too much about a set timeline. I got the 6 question E-mail last Friday, a phone call from Senator Bond on Wednesday, and the official E-mail notice of award today (Friday)Start to finish in one week.

    Last year, it seems they were all a week or so apart.

    Two in a row. This should prove that the little departments can do it. We're less than 100 calls per year including EMS, 18 FF's, and a budget less than 25K. Don't make a Christmas list, play by their rules and write a concise request. That's all it takes.

    Hang in there the official word feels great

    Fellow Firefighters,

    Guys hang in there. These timelines will give you a bit more hope but they don't appear to be written in stone. There seems to be a huge amount of paperwork that needs to be done for each and evey grant with only a small number of folks working on it. I was very impressed that we received our notification in the 7th Round. I figured it would drag out 6 weeks or so. But the good news came much earlier than that. We recieved the 1199a on July 2nd. We got our 6 questions on the 12th of July. The grant was awarded in Round 7 on the 25th. Good Luck & Remember that phone call makes all this work and wishing very worth it.

    we found 1199a late on july 1 then on july 3 in the early P.M. found 6 questions. Both times responded as soon as these were found. Recieved call from local TV station on july 16 asking for information on what we were going to use the grant for due to them recieving a press release from our U.S. Senator. Found Our name on FEMA anouncement on july 17. Found grant package on july 18. we had applied three times and finaly recieved. Good luck to all

    I sent my 1199a on Thursday via Priority Mail. I still haven't heard anything else. I called 800 number yesterday afternoon to confirm they received it and the guy told me there was no way that they could do that right now because they were receiving so many in. He also said it could take up to 15 days to process the 1199a. Hopefully I will get my 6 questions soon.

    We recieved our request for paperwork around 6/26 and the six questions 7/8 and we got our grant confirmation a few days before round 6 was announced. Not 100% sure on the dates but those are close. Once you get the six questions its a few weeks till you get the call.
