     The $217,000 in small matching grants for historic preservation projects in Palm Beach County includes $105,000 to the City of Lake Worth. [emphasis added]
     The only Palm Beach County applicant that made the cut for larger historic preservation grants was the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, which will receive $500,000 for the restoration of Sunset Lounge.
