Bussard Gets Another Round Of Funding?

I'm not sure what to make of this thread at citing an August 23 post at Power And Control indicating that Robert Bussard's inertial containment Polywell fusion device has been funded; that post itself points to a lengthier New Energy And Fuel post with more details. I'm hopeful but Bussard has himself confessed to misleading people before for the purpose of getting more money for other projects he feels promising. Nevertheless, since this is his pony (and there's talk he's in failing health), it's pretty certain he's going to ride this one. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
