    19. South Central LWG Applications per Locally Led Funding Pools for 2013

    20. South Central LWG • Barriers or issues: • Multiple deadlines have spread out applications, though no additional funding comes for later sign ups. • Statewide Initiatives have broken up funding and created confusion among customers as far as what and when to apply. • Statewide Initiatives do not show up on this presentation. • Locally led process seems to be less “local” each year.
