  • Other grants and funding.......

    I'm a new chief of a small volunteer department in Maryland. We applied in 2005 for a FEMA grant and received a DJ in October of 2005. This most recent FEMA grant I received an email on 1/6/2007 for the 1199A form, but was unable to get it back until early this week. And we received our 10 questions a couple days later which I filled out and emailed back immediately. First, will getting the 1199 back 2 weeks after receiving it hurt us? Second does receiving these 2 requests mean we are receiving our grant?

    Also, does anyone know of any other grants that are available to small departments out in the hicks of Maryland? If so please let me know what grants and where I can find the information on them.

    Taking 2 weeks to get the 1199A returned should not hurt your chances. Your chances (99%) are excellent for recieving the grant. The 1199A and 10 q's are indicators that you are moving towards the grant. It's not official until you recieve that coverted e-mail telling you have been awarded. Chilling the bubbly wouldn't hurt.

      Help

      HI,
      Drop me a email at [email protected]. We are a small startup fire department as of 4-2006 in Bakerton WV (AKA hicks of WV)and might have a couple idea that we have found to help out some. We are in teh final stages of getting some land donated and hope to break ground on the station in the spring.

      Maybe we can even work out a swap of donated stuff to help each other out.

      We do have a website up now, check it out at www.bfd7.com

      Take care adn looking forward to hering from you.

                Take a look at the USDA Rural Emergency Responders Inititiative at:
                http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/rhs/cf/Em...ders_initi.htm

                As for Massachusetts, you know as well as I do, getting new infrastructure is difficult at best. This requires community backing. Which usually entails a Prop 2 1/2 override, a long shot at best.

                If you can find a way to reclassify yourself as a school, there is almost an unlimited amount of funding (at the expense of every one else).

                Another option is on the scope of the project. If small enough check with a local Votech school, they are always looking for projects to work on to provide training opportunities for the students.

                    Limeforever,

                    Thanks for the vote of confidence , but I'm a novice with FEPP. The one that's the expert is neiowa. Now he's the one that needs to get on the lecture circuit.
