If Evan had continued this season he would have received A1 funding. He wasn't the natl champion, only the Olympic champion and Grand Prix Champion and 09' WC.
Jeremy as Natl champion also received A1 funding.
Do I need to cite a rule book for giving Evan A1 funding? No, it only takes a teenie bit of common sense.
Giving Evan A1 funding would not be diminishing Natls or anything else. It would be a matter of recognizing his accomplishments.
