The NHPRC grant did not come through; a Boston archive was to be consulted for advice. More formal cooperation between the dioceses was suggested in order to legitimize the Commission's efforts and grant requests. Clearer processing guides and a budget would be created as well to aid in funding applications. Money to publish the history of the Newark Archdiocese is to be discussed.
