The Village of Indiantown has success with grants


INDIANTOWN -- The Village of Indiantown grant writer and administrator, Tracy Bryant, has been laser-focused on finding ways to “enhance the community and aid in economic prosperity” through grant funds in recent months. She has cultivated her 20-plus years of experience as a grant/contract manager and grant writing skill applying for $7 million in funds to date.  Of that $7 million, the Village anticipates receiving $6.3 million. The parks, drainage systems and sidewalks are some of the improvements the funds will complete.

Here are a few of the grants Bryant has applied for:

  • The Florida legislative appropriation for Booker Park’s Street and drainage improvements provide $2 million,
  • The Florida legislative appropriation for the design and planning of the Uptown Roadway and drainage project provides $350,000. However, this is a 50% matching grant bringing its total to $700,000,
  • Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) specified for the roadway and drainage along Seminole Drive and a backup generator at the Booker Park lift station weighs in at 750,000,
  • The Interior Renovation Grant, Enterprise Florida, reimbursement is $25,000 specified for the interior of the village hall, and,
  • The Mobility Grant is $50,000 in reimbursement for the $175,000 mobility fee study.

When combined, these grants total $3.4 million of funding for the Village. Bryant said the $6.3 million includes the American Rescue Plan Act funds. She also believes her efforts are advancing the Village mission, its vision and values.
