Rep. Ami Bera secures $4 million in federal funding for Elk Grove projects

As one of his last acts representing Elk Grove, U.S. Rep. Ami Bera secured $4 million in funding for Elk Grove public work projects. The appropriations were part $1.7 trillion omnibus funding bill that President Joe Biden will sign this week. 

The $4 million for Elk Grove was part of the $32 million Bera secured for CA District 7 projects. Bera, who has represented the 7th District since 2012, was elected to the newly drawn 6th District, which does not include Elk Grove. 

Bera and U.S. Rep Doris Matsui switched districts for the 2022 Congressional elections, and both easily won reelection. Elk Grove will now be in the newly drawn 7th and represented by Matsui.

The Elk Grove funding includes $2 million each for  Laguna Creek Inter-Regional Trail Crossing at State Route 99 and  Old Town Streetscape Project Phase 2. In addition, Bera secured funding for 15 district projects, including $4 million for the Capital SouthEast Connector - D3a Class I Multi-Use Path.

“My top priority since entering Congress has been to make government work for Sacramento County,” Bera said in his announcement on the funding. “Today, I continue to deliver on that promise by proudly announcing that over $32 million in federal funding is coming to our community. This significant investment will help build a brighter and stronger future for Sacramento families and businesses.” 

The funding was part of Community Funding Project appropriations. A list of the other District 7 projects is available here
