  • Where Is Round 2

    Has Anyone Seen The Round 2 Fireact Grants? I Thought They Did Them At 9pm Eastern Time On Fridays.
    YOU ONLY NEED TO BE STUPID ONCE TO BE DEAD FOREVER!

        18,000+ other departments are asking the same question. Only a couple of people "in the know" seem to know that the feds skipped this week for the budget year cleanup. Just another secret.
        P.S. I read this on another thread and am like you, in the dark and still waiting.

          Past history has the AFG not awarding on weeks with a Holiday in them.

            Rec call from FEMA today

            Rec call from FEMA, we received our grant but they had to reduce our award based on the following. They only allow a cap of $35000 for air compressor and $5000 for each airpack. But I was told that we received our grant!!!
            YEE HAW

                Just to clarify and not cause any panic. The FEMA rep that called me could not tell me which round we will get the award it might be Round 2 which is NEXT week. Guys don't get upset, Brian has already told people that this week is the fiscal year changeover and no awards will be announced.

                  Yep, it's you. Most of us are just happy to have the program, remembering
                  the days not too long ago when there was nothing.

                  Take a breath, calm down, and remember, good things come to those who
                  wait....

                    Let me temper this just a bit.

                    The grants will come. No doubt about it. We have been trying to
                    get a truck for 4 or 5 years now, it finally came. So what if it takes
                    another week to be announced?

                    If you want to get upset about things, pick something good.

                    North Korea with "the" bomb. That is scary, and upsetting.

                    My grandbaby called me this morning, she got 4 shots for school. That
                    really upset her.

                    My mainline business truck has a leak in the fuel system, and no
                    parts available until Monday, and it is supposed to be on the road
                    Saturday PM. That is kind of upsetting.

                    Another week for an announcement? No big deal....

                      Gotta agree..... I'm pretty thankful that last week over 800 departments got funding to make them better and safer. I don't really care how long it took, any red tape or anything else... the fact is that millions of dollars were put into the fire service last week alone. As a matter of fact, if all other funding for the remainder of this year was suddenly cut off, I think I'd still call it a success, because something is better than nothing.

                      Remember a grant is a grant...not an entitlement.

                          You shouldn’t have to apologize for speaking the truth and, yes, I agree clearer information would help the process and make those departments waiting feel better (however, please don’t hold your breathe until it does). The wait and stress has been ridiculous this year.

                          Example – last week the very announcement from DHS stated the first round of grants had been issued and awards would continue “every week” through the remainder of 06 until some 5000 awards were announced. Then they skip the very next week for fiscal year clear up? This may be the truth and needed to continue the process.

                          But…..they knew that when they said “every week”. If you look back to last year they skipped two weeks in October and in 04 they skipped four weeks.

                            No need to apologize, we just don't want you on the heart attack list. Stress is a killer!

                            What happens, happens. I know it is not easy to accept that, it
                            has taken me 46 years to figure it out.

                            Is the FEMA program perfect? Nope. Nothing is. (Except aforementioned
                            grand daughter) Do we want it to get better? Sure do.
