It’s hard to start establishing funding and receiving grants, regardless of the ideas behind your projects. But TPP takes that risk and gives that first step up and with the TPP grant funding just a little portion of our work it has opened the door to many other opportunities. When people in the community start to see actual progress and work being done they begin to share the vision and it has helped build a network and establish community partners that has thus led to  more funding for the bigger work ahead.
(In July 2015, this project won a $250,000 grant from the State of Florida)
