Rep. Takano Announces $850,000 in Public Safety and Transportation Community Funding in CA-39

A Part of $12.8 Million in Total FY '24 Community Project Funding to CA-39

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.) released the following statement on three public safety and transportation community funding projects included in the FY 24 appropriations process. 

“Safer communities and reliable transportation go hand-in-hand,” said Rep. Takano. “From monitoring sensitive areas of the Inland Empire, to improving standards within public transportation – these projects ensure that everyone in Riverside County can live safely. I am proud to announce the funding of these projects and congratulate the recipients on their successful application.”

The three projects selected are:

$200,000 for the City of Perris Code Enforcement Body Camera Public Safety Project

$150,000 for the City of Jurupa Valley Illegal Dumping Surveillance Camera Pilot Program

$500,000 for Metrolink’s Double Track Project: Moreno Valley to Perris

Congressman Takano submitted 15 Community Funding Requests to the Appropriations Committee. 14 of these projects received funding. All of his Community Project Funding requests and financial disclosures can be found here.

This is the latest action Rep. Takano has taken to improve public safety and transportation systems in the Inland Empire. Last year, Rep. Takano announced the selection of Riverside and Moreno Valley within the Safe Street for All Grant Program which will bring over $23 million in infrastructure upgrades to improve pedestrian and driver safety.
