Thanks for the pre-proposal, as you can likely already see, the budget is going to be a mess this month and probably for the next several months until the market recovers. You've done and continue to do great work, so don't let any lapse in your funding suggest otherwise to anyone. Hopefully we'll have enough room in the budget for great projects like yours moving forward.
