My apologies for the delayed response. I'm currently preparing another interim release of 100+ pages or so. This batch of records had to be sent out to other federal agencies and departments because they had equities in this information. I sent the consultation letter out to nine different agencies on 1/9/2014, and I have just received my last response. This case is tricky because we have to consult with outside agencies and with the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. I hope this has been helpful. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
