Dear Mr. Strimbeck:
I have received a response from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) regarding my inquiry on behalf of the West Virginia Port Authority's request for funding from the Boating Infrastructure Grant (BIG) program. Enclosed you will find a copy of that letter for your reference.
As you will note, FWS states that a decision has not yet been reached because they did not have all the requested information from the Port Authority. According to FWS, the additional information has again been requested. I hope you find this information helpful.
Please don't hesitate to contact me again if I may be helpful in any way. I want to be of all possible assistance.

Dear Mr. Mollohan:
Thank you for your letter inquiring about the status of the West Virginia Port Authority's project proposal for funding from the Boating Infrastructure Grant Program (BIG) for Morgantown and Star City. BIG is one of the most sought-after grant programs administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service).
The project proposal remains under consideration because not all information requested has been received. The Service has communicated with the State on this matter and hopes to receive the required information in the immediate future. If the State or project sponsors would like assistance with issues associated with the needed material, they should contact Mr. Al Ortiz in our Region 5 office at, 413-253-8406
