Today, Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40) announced further details about 40th District communities receiving Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to help these communities prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus.  The Cities of Bell, Bell Gardens, Commerce, Cudahy, and Maywood are receiving a combined $1.2 million in CDBG funding, as part of HUD’s allocation of $13.7 million in CDBG funding to Los Angeles County.  The CDBG funding total for LA County was announced last week, as was $32 million in funding for the City of Los Angeles, and a combined $2.4 million for the Cities of Bellflower, Downey, Huntington Park, and Paramount.

“Community Development Block Grants help our communities sustain and improve their infrastructure, economy, and services,” said Rep. Roybal-Allard.  “That’s why I’m pleased that $1.2 million of LA County’s CDBG funding is going directly to five of our 40th District cities, to help them prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus.  I’ll keep doing all I can to secure the federal assistance our communities need, both during this health and economic crisis and beyond.”
