It's in the early stages, but people dealing with medical conditions may have their burdens lifted when it comes to the proposed F-M diversion.

Plans are in the works to come up with funding to buyout people who are negatively affected by the location and timing of the diversion project and are suffering an extreme medical condition.

For now, they're only looking at extreme medical situations, but once they get authorization from congress and funding in place, the hardship policy may expand to include financial cases as well.

Tom Waters – Project Manager Diversion Outreach Committee: β€œIt is a safety net for those who are have medical, severe situations, so that the project will to cause their situation to be worse or prevent them from getting the care they need.”

To learn how to apply for the medical hardship and who's eligible, they'll soon have information on the F-M diversion website.
