What is happening in Elk Grove this week, March 19, 2024

Federal Funding Supports Local Projects
A $460 billion federal spending bill signed into law by President Biden this month includes more than $2.2 million in funding for projects that will make Elk Grove safer, cleaner, and more walkable. 
$715,000 to add two social workers to the Elk Grove Police Department as part of the Domestic Violence Intervention and Prevention Program.$1 million to install upgrades at city facilities to support the transition to electric vehicles as part of the Zero Emissions Vehicle Municipal Infrastructure Project.$500,000 to construct a multi-use path and sidewalk as part of the Bruceville Walkability Improvement Project
We want to express our gratitude to California Senators Butler and Padilla and a big thanks to Congresswoman Doris Matsui for her advocacy and support for all three of our community project funding requests.
