Fourth Quarter Grants & Incentives Workshop Dates

14:52 29 October in Press Room

Delray Beach, FL, Oct. 29, 2014 — The Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency continues to host workshops to educate potential applicants about a number of funding opportunities available to local businesses, developers and commercial property owners in the CRA District.

Existing businesses located within the CRA District, as well as businesses considering relocating to Delray Beach, are encouraged to attend. The workshops also provide useful information to professional service providers such as area realtors, contractors, and architects.

“We have so many opportunities available for a diverse population within our District,” said Elizabeth Burrows, Delray Beach Economic Development Manager. “Our goal is to make these programs more visible to those who qualify but might not be aware of them.”

Applicants will learn about the different programs and funding amounts available and are able to ask questions regarding eligibility. The workshops also include basic tips for completing application packets and composing business plans and financial projections. Each attendee is provided a list of business resources, such as contact information for local merchant associations, building permits, business tax receipts, and other potential funding sources to help them with their projects.

Seating is limited, so advance registration is required. Contact the CRA office or tweet @DelrayBeachCRA to sign up. The 90-minute workshops will be held at the Delray Chamber of Commerce (140 NE 1st Street.)

The 2014 Fourth Quarter workshop dates are as follows:

Monday, Nov. 17 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm

Monday, Dec. 15 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm
