    Finally!

    After 2 years of frustration looks like we might have made it! Got the 1199 update on 10/23. Received the 7 questions yesterday, 11/7. Going for turnout gear, SCBA's, hose, radios and training. I'm saving the cigar for the official word. For those of you still waiting, keep the faith!

    Received the 1199A link 10/06, confirmation of 1199A on 10/20, 7 questions plus an extra question on 10/25. Did not make the 21st round.

    How long is the average wait to receive an award?

    Received a phone call from one of the local news channels asking about the grant money we received from FEMA. It appears that one of our congressman called them and let them know we received the grant. NOTHING was told to us. I looked on the USFA.FEMA website and sure enough our name was on the list for the 20th round. Now where did i put that checkbook??????


    GOOD LUCK AND STAY SAFE

    Seriously folks, I would stop worrying about it. Don't stress over whether or not you miss "that call," or not. If you land a grant, they WILL contact you if your info is correct.


    This statement is sooooooooo true. FEMA called and left a message on my cell phone. YOU WILL be contacted if the info is correct.

    Noz, my man; you are the shining example. Someone who got their grant and still says "you know what; we got money, but the program can be improved".
    Hey, you know it would take a LOT more money than that to get me to shut MY big mouth!
    Seriously folks, I would stop worrying about it. Don't stress over whether or not you miss "that call," or not. If you land a grant, they WILL contact you if your info is correct. I'll tell ya, the first year we were excited; no grant. The second year, we were optimistic; no grant. This year, we didn't give it a second thought after working on the narrative, so we didn't have any stress about it at all. I basically took a look at some successful grants from the last few years and used what techniques I thought would best represent OUR needs in the most polite manner, along with some ideas of my own. Apparantly, it worked. Again, thanks to all the congrats from you guys. I now know the bitter-sweet taste of winning a grant for ourselves, but knowing that so many of you will not be successful this year. And, the fact that I fear the changes in the control of OUR grant program (I think we are justified in calling it "ours") is going to make it much less effective, makes it even worse.

    Re; grant revoke box

    Its ok to open if you are the grant admin for your dept., it would be where you or the grant administrator could add or remove your contact info for the application, like if you had your chief, or a deputy chief down for the 2 or 3rd contact and there was a change in command structure. You should have at least 2 preferably 3 people able to access in case you need to change something. FOr us its myself, my grant committee co-chair, and the chief has the info locked away in case its needed if my co-chair or myself were unavailable, death, injury, vacation, etc. whatever my befall us poor mortals.

    Good luck with your grant, we are still waiting, wishing, hoping, praying, crossing everything, etc, etc.

    Firechief15201,

    I'm the same way. I would hate to hit a button just for the h*** of it and lost all the money for my company. Somethings are better not knowing what they do. Maybe someone who has more guts than us can tell us.

    Guys, congratulations to all that received a grant this year, and good luck to all still waiting to hear. We were fortunate enough to receive a grant also after losing out the past 2 years. However, I do have a question. In the drop down box on the application, there is a link that says "grant/revoke access". Does anyone know what this means? I don't want to click on it without first knowing what it means.

    Thank you for your honesty. It is refreshing.

    Just got off the phone with grant specialist #2. Had some mistakes on the 1199a form that needed to be corrected. Jerry1A you might want to call them concerning your 1199a form. You should have received a confirmation that it was accepted and approved by FEMA. The lady i talked to said that unless all the info is correct, you would not be notified. I was sent an e-mail today concerning the errors on the form. She released the online form for me to make the corrections. Now everything should be in order. Hopefully we'll hear something next week.

    GOOD LUCK AND STAY SAFE
