Thank you for the excellent work you and the staff of LSCOG do to assist Denmark. Much of the infrastructure we have would not be possible without your assistance. We appreciate your guidance and diligent attention to the CDBG application process. The advice and recommendations from you and the LSCOG staff has proven invaluable.
