Steve -

You have applied through proper channels but your request is not valid as
it does not meet allocation policy criteria.  ARIN cannot allocate IPv4
resources to your organization as a result of that invalid request.

As others have noted, under the ISP multi-homed initial allocation policies
(NRPM 4.2.2.2), there is a requirement to utilized the equivalent of a /23
(generally from your upstream ISP) before receiving for initial allocation
from ARIN. This is not a policy requirement which is unique to your business
but long-standing requirement in policy that all service providers have had
to satisfy when making that transition.

Jimmy Hess did make an excellent point with regard to transfers - under the
8.3 specified transfer policy, your full IP address needs for 24 months can
be considered in approving a transfer, and as such that may be more helpful
with your present situation.  As ARIN is obligated to follow the existing
policy as adopted, a transfer may be a more timely option that developing
a policy change to these requirements for initial ISP allocations.

FYI,
