Hammon Park Receives CWHIP Grant from State of Florida

I just received word that the State of Florida awarded Hammon Park the grant applied for in January of this year. This will help underwrite the cost of the units in Hammon Park so that they are available to essential service workers and bring more residents near our downtown. Here is the e-mail I received from one of the principals in the project. There were 49 applicants applying for money through this competitive program.

Total Grant Award: $5.5 Million


I wanted to let you know we just received word that we were awarded a CWHIP grant. We placed second under the High Cost category and we came in second in the Innovation category. We finished 2nd overall in the state with a total score of 194 out of 200 possible points.

Thank you for all you hard work and the passion you brought to the team. It’s great news for us and the City of Lake Worth.
