    The cash is easy.

    2001 - $100 million
    2002 - $350 million
    2003 - $750 million

    Each year is the total program including Administrative Costs, not the amount that was available for awards.

    The number of departments will take a little more digging. Somewhere I thought FEMA posted the percentage of total US departments that the applicants represented. It was close to 30-35% I think, putting the total number of US departments at close to 60,000. It sounds like a high number but most of the northeast has limits on district size. As I said in another post, PA has close to 3,800 departments, and NY isn't far behind. Someone has to have that statistic. USFA, FEMA, someone.

      reasoning behind my question is probably fairly obivious to a lot of you guys but to those who are not I basicly was wondering if they took all the omoney put into the grants total and divided it up to each dept, what would the total be that each dept got. Well if you dont want to do the math, if you work off BC's numbers its roughly $20,000 per dept. Of course it would all increase as the years pass but as much as that $20,000 would help some depts. imeadiately it would just be a drop in the bucket in the long run.
