But, Chip wouldn't they lose these funds if they don't use them? Oh yes!!!! I know; the money is already allocated, and they have known about this money for awhile, but we won't have time to get our ideas in--again--so we lose again.

Hi all,In today's Democrat is an announcement from StarMetro in which they announce they have approximately $47000 in stimulus funding, which is to be used forprojects which aid the disabled in transportation needs, and overcoming barriers, beyond the ADA. This is called the "New Freedom Program". Projects must be submitted to StarMetro by September 24th. for more information contact Andrea Rosser at StarMetro. personally, I find this announcement bewildering, since I've been hearing from a group of local blind activists who have been communicating with StarMetro on the needs of blind riders, that StarMetro has repeatedly saidthey do not have enough funds to put braille labels on all bus stops in the new Nova 2010 program. They have not once mentioned (to my knowledge), theexistence of this program.In fact, I cannot find documentation on this program on their web site, andthis is the first mention of it I've come across. I don't see how anyone can be expected to design and cost out a perspective project by September 24th.
