Some Well Needed Federal Support

San Mateo, CA – Local community projects will receive a boost of federal support as U.S. Rep. Kevin Mullin secured $12,976,031 in Community Project Funding for California’s 15th District as part of the first package of long-awaited, bipartisan 2024 spending bills. This funding responds directly to some of the most pressing needs in the community including transportation improvements, increasing affordable child care spaces, expanding recreational opportunities across the district, and addressing storm water infrastructure. The House and Senate will consider the bills this week ahead of the March 8 funding deadline before they are sent to the President to be signed into law.

“Delivering for my district is my primary goal as a member of Congress and I am incredibly pleased to announce that this first round of bipartisan government funding bills includes $12,976,031 for 14 community projects across California’s 15th District,” Rep. Mullin said. “These investments will make a real difference in the lives of many residents in our community and will help grow our economy. I am proud to have fought for funding that invests in critical infrastructure, parks, and early childhood learning opportunities that will provide widespread benefits across the entire district.”
