Takano. “These projects will contribute to moreliving and recreational spaces in the Inland Empire, and I am particularly excited for the additional homes for our community’s veterans. I am proud to announce the funding of these projects and congratulate the recipients on their successful application.”

The three projects selected are:

$2,500,000 for the Renovation of the Historic Armory Building in Fairmont Park in the City of Riverside

$1,666,279 for the City of Perris Senior Center Expansion project
