Project Review Meetings

EWG will host project review meetings for project sponsors. The review meetings provide an opportunity for project sponsors to meet withEWG staff to discuss various components of the proposed project, including project concepts, eligibility, project schedule, etc. Sponsorswill be able to sign up for a 30-minute time slot, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:10 p.m., on the following days: January 6, January 13, January 20, and January 27. This meeting is intended for project sponsors that have at the very least a specific project concept to present for review.
