Thought this note might be of interest to some. Not exactly sure what it means.

Hello Anya,

The new process will be clearly outlined on the website shortly, as will an updated waiting list. Notification emails are now the method by which we communicate reservation numbers and request a full application. This is only after funds are proven to be available for the project. Note that some of your members are very close to that point.

The new “approval letter” comes after full review and approval of the application and rebate request; it is the very last stage before payment. That letter is then signed and returned to DDOE. The change to this approach eliminates a host of problems with last year’s letter, back-and-forth communication, etc. Apologies for any confusion.
