Dear friends and neighbors,
When I came to Congress, I made a promise to take care of our community and bring back federal dollars to the San Fernando Valley.
For the first time since 2009, Congress was able to send Community Project Funding directly to our neighborhoods.
I’m proud to have worked with Senator Alex Padilla to bring home more than $24 million — money that will make a real, direct impact on the lives of our friends and neighbors. The funding will support community improvement, housing for homeless, job training, youth programs, mental health services and more.
Over the coming weeks and months, you will begin to see these projects throughout our community. We are sending:
- $5 million to create a new pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Pacoima Wash. This will provide direct access to the future El Dorado Park.
- $800,000 to Pacoima Beautiful for the Pacoima Wash Greenway Project.
- $1 million to Abbey Road in North Hills to create housing for homeless youth.
- $1 million to Mid Valley YMCA for after school programs in Van Nuys.
- $3 million to LA Family Housing to convert the Panorama Inn into housing for homeless.
- $450,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of the San Fernando Valley for STEM after school programs.
- $400,000 to Penny Lane in North Hills to provide job training to homeless individuals with severe mental health conditions.
- $400,000 to Los Angeles Valley College and Los Angeles Mission College to expand STEM development programs.
- $300,000 to El Proyecto Del Barrio to provide job training through community service.
- $200,000 to Champions In Service in Pacoima to provide mental health services.
- $5 million for the East San Fernando Valley Light Rail Transit Corridor Project.
- $3.5 million for the Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project to improve transit service between the San Fernando Valley and the Westside.
- $1.5 million for the construction of the Mental Health Hub on the Olive View-UCLA Medical Center Campus in Sylmar.
- $1.3 million for the Los Angeles Community College District to expand health care and biotech programs.
- $1 million for California State University Northridge’s Equity Innovation Hub to support Latino students in STEM.
