Race to the Top
Anticipated Benefits Infrastructure Modernized Environmental Stewardship National Security Economic Development This is the new way of doing business that leverages funds and gets real work done, drives the local economy and you get a guarantee of performance to boot.
Opportunity Merriam-Webster illustrates the definition as a favorable juncture of circumstances We have all contributed to the creation of these opportunities; if you dont find a way to benefit you and your organization, someone else will be leveraging your contribution for their success.
A Timely Purpose Lets get people hired and checks in their pockets allowing them to begin to spend again. Only when those dollars are spent and the associated taxes collected do we effectively re- fuel the economic model that supports our civic essential services. If we can do that while saving energy and our environment, weve accomplished our part of economic recovery.
