A pilot program, funded by Congress, had set up a number of teleworking centers in the Washington, D. C. area. Some federal workers were given the option of reporting to these centers a few days per week. The workspaces have not been fully utilized, but they have been busier since the attack on the Pentagon. In New York, many displaced federal workers are now working from home as an accommodation to their mental duress.
