Fiscal Note
In 2014, the sale of NSP-funded properties generated $56,460.38 in program income. These funds were returned to the City of Madison to be used in another NSP-eligible property. The NSP program design allows the funds to be given in the form of a grant.

No additional funds are being requested, and there is no impact on the local levy.
