Most of the money has already been allocated---they had an overwhelming response to the program. They don't know if they can cover all of requests that they have now. Nothing like free money to wake people up.

well kinda of MW, all tax payers are paying for these programs and we all wonder and know why our taxes are so high. So take advantage of them and get some of your money back. Its no different than giving these scientist money to study the green horned three legged toad or maple research or why peanut butter sticks to the roof of a dogs mouth.
