The CRA funded the conceptual planning of this project at $88,000 as well as the design engineering and partial permitting at $170,000. Construction of the project will be funded by a $2.7 million federal grant from HUD administered by the Florida Department of Community Affairs. This grant, known as the Community Development Block Grant, is earmarked for the Disaster Recovery Initiative and the CRA is a sub-recipient to Collier County. The Department of Housing, Human, and Veteran’s Services (HHVS) administers the grant locally and is partnering with the CRA to ensure proper oversight. The CRA sends a special Thank You! to HHVS for all their help with project funding for our special community!
