Great News from the NAPC:

These Neighborhood Associations and other Lake Worth Groups have had their REAP Resident Education to Action Grants recommended for approval. That means that these grants will go before the County Commission later this Summer for funding and implementation can start immediately after that. Total grant funding approved for Lake Worth Neighbors: $38,500. Total amount awarded to all of Palm Beach County REAP Participants: $86,412.00. Lake Worth brings home 45%. Well Done Lake Worth.

Special Thanks to Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell who spoke on behalf of Lake Worth Neighborhoods at the graduation ceremony where the grant recipients were announced and of course, Thanks to the Palm Beach County Office of Community Revitalization for allowing all of us this tremendous opportunity!
