RIVERSIDE - Nearly $16 million in federal grants for affordable housing projects will be flowing to Riverside County agencies and three cities within the county, it was announced on Friday, Aug. 2.

"These grants will help our community by increasing the supply of decent, affordable housing for low-income families, expanding economic opportunities and assisting homeless individuals,'' said Rep. Mark Takano, D-Riverside. "This is a victory for our district and for all of the Inland Empire.''

The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development assigned the community development block grants after weighing needs-based criteria.

According to Takano's office, the largest grant, $10.76 million, is earmarked for Riverside County government, likely to be managed by the Economic Development Agency.

The city of Moreno Valley will receive $2.93 million in grant funds, while neighboring Perris will receive $908,522, Takano said.

Jurupa Valley is slated to receive $1.2 million from HUD, he said.
