San Diego Leaders Thank Federal Representatives For Delivering $221M In Community Funding



A bipartisan coalition of leaders from across San Diego County on Friday, December 23 expressed its sin[1]cere appreciation for the efforts of San Diego’s congressional delegation, who secured more than $221 million across 49 local community projects as part of the Fiscal Year 2023 federal appropriations bill.

“I want to thank the San Diego Congressional delegation for continuing to successfully advocate for our city and our region,” San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria said. “This year, our Congressional representatives delivered nine community projects for the city totaling $21.2 million dollars. From renovating libraries to re[1]pairing streetlights to childcare support for City workers, I know these investments will have a direct impact in the lives of San Diegans and continue to trans[1]form our community for decades to come.”

Senators Dianne Feinstein and Alex Padilla and Congressmembers Scott Peters, Juan Vargas, Mike Levin, Sara Jacobs, and Darrell Issa continue to deliver for the region, as they did in 2021 when they delivered over $107 million across 28 community projects.

“We are fortunate to have a congressional delegation that is effective and understands the priorities of our region,” said Nathan Fletcher, chair of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. “As the needs of our working families grow, we thank our San Diego delegation for securing critical funding that will help us meet the mental health and substance abuse needs in our communities, better care for vulnerable at-risk youth in our foster care system, clean up pollution and improve water quality throughout the border region, and bolster our capacity to protect our region from deadly wildfires. San Diego County is safer, cleaner, and more prosperous because of these investments.”
