U.S. Congresswoman Michelle Steel this week announced that her office had secured more than $27 million for a series of local governments and ongoing projects.

“This week, the House passed the Fiscal Year 2024 (FY24) funding package, which I’m proud to report included over $27 million in direct funding requested by cities and community stakeholders in California’s 45th District,” she said in a statement.

“These important projects originate from the community and will support key needs within our cities. They provide much needed upgrades to our communities from law enforcement facilities to critical water and transportation infrastructure,” said Steel in the statement.
Very locally, it appears as the Boys and Girls Club of Anaheim Cypress will receive $250,000 while the City of Los Alamitos will get more than $500,000 for its transportation program.
