While I'm grateful to have received a response, I am sad to hear that Ms. Dowdle has passed away.
I was encouraged to resubmit next year provided the agency moves forward.

I'm sorry, but at this time your project does not fit what I am looking for, and so I will have to pass. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.
