The Lake Worth CRA, in conjunction with other consortium partners, prepared a grant application in July 2009 in pursuit of NSP2 funds for our target area. The total request amount was $23.2 million. On January 14, 2010, we received official word that our application was fully funded. While 482 applications were submitted, with requests totaling over $15 billion, only 56 rewards were given. These 56 applicants were able to leverage more than $500 million in public and private assets. The Lake Worth CRA was one of only seven organizations in the state of Florida to receive these funds.
