“Riverside County is growing, and we need to keep up. That’s why I secured more than $30 million in funding requests that will meet the needs of our community and everyone who calls the Inland Empire home,” said Rep. Mark Takano. “These projects will create jobs, improve our roads, fight homelessness, and find affordable housing solutions. While this is just the first step in the process, it’s an important step, and one that I’m glad was taken. I will continue to do everything in my power to bring these projects to life and advocate for my district and my constituents in Congress.”

Rep. Takano secured funding for these projects through a process established by the House Committee on Appropriations known as community project funding. The inclusion of this funding in the committee’s funding measures is one step in the federal appropriations process. Rep. Takano will continue to fight for this funding as the bill moves to consideration in the House of Representatives, and negotiations with the Senate.
