Hm, I wonder how much of this is stimulus money that these two senators voted against?
Anyway, here’s the text of the press release of 7 October:
Isakson, Chambliss to Host Federal Grants Workshop on October 26 in Savannah
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., today announced their offices will host a statewide federal grants workshop on Monday, Oct. 26, 2009. The workshop will be held at the Armstrong Center at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, Ga., from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
The grants workshop is an opportunity for Georgia organizations and governments to speak with representatives from the federal granting agencies about grant opportunities available to them. Over 50 federal departments and agencies have been invited to participate in the event.
“I am honored to be able to offer this excellent opportunity to local governments and organizations from across Georgia,” said Isakson. “I encourage anyone interested in meeting with staff members from federal granting agencies to attend this workshop, whether they’re unfamiliar with the grants process or knowledgeable about the practice.”

I’m pleased to offer this workshop to all interested Georgians.”
