Deadline correction:  Section G(3) of the RFA incorrectly states the deadline for municipalities or COGs needing additional time to complete Certified Resolutions or regional letters of support as Thursday, January 28, 2016 at 4:00pm.  The correct deadline for receipt of resolutions or letters is Thursday, February 25th, 2016 at 4:00pm.  All other deadlines remain as specified in Section G of the RFA.
