Yes, we have plenty of applications to make it. The issue at this point is in the process, specifically in the IEM QC review of scopes of work. They are increasing the capacity of that function, but have been hit hard by loss of qualified people to the other storms. Relative to total flows, we do hope to go higher than the 200, but that is a short term goal. The goal is to get all funds awarded within 9 months to a year.

Pat do we have the applications in place to get to 200 per day? If we get to 200 per day (and only counting business days), we will have helped about 9,000 homeowners by the end of the year. And assuming average of $30,500 per home, we will have spent about $275 million. When will we use up the $1.7 or so billion? And do we have a easy to read chart showing how long it took in other places compared to what we are doing.
