On January 12th, Congressman John Garamendi (D-Walnut Grove) announced that he successfully secured $37 million as part of a government funding package for Fiscal Year 2023 for transportation, workforce development, affordable housing, drinking water improvement, and flood control projects in several counties in his district, including the RCRC member counties of Solano and Yolo. Funding for the local projects was added to the legislation as Community Project Funding requests—a new initiative that allows Members of Congress to request direct funding for critically important projects in their district. The legislation was signed into law by President Biden in December. View all the projects funded here.
