“Following Up” on a Grant Application

Grants person for a small nonprofit here. My ED wants me to follow up on a grant we applied for a few months ago. The notification date was last week, and we didn’t hear from them. Actually, we have no idea if they received our application. They’re old school, and insist that everything goes through the mail. They do not take phone calls, but if you search, you can find a general email box.

My question is: would you follow up in this situation? If so, would you use the general email, and what would you say? I have been in situations where a granter has offered feedback or explanation when a request was not funded, but I have never followed up if I didn’t hear before, I’ve just assumed it was a “no”, and that they don’t notify the “no’s”.
