U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing Lourdes Castro Ramirez joined Mayor Kevin Johnson in Sacramento to announce that Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency and the City of Sacramento will receive a $30 million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant to redevelop the distressed Twin Rivers public housing community and revitalize the Sacramento River District-Railyards neighborhood. Sacramento was one of five recipients.
“This is a reflection of the direction that Sacram ento is headed and how the federal government is a continued partner in our region’s success,” sa id Congresswoman Doris Matsui. “The housing and infrastructure at Twin Rivers is old and must be replaced. This grant will help us replace the housing, improve the transportation connections to the neighborhood, and implement a number of social services that will benefit the area’s res idents. I am confident that this grant will truly transform our community. I am thankful for HUD Secr etary Julián Castro’s commitment to our city, as well as SHRA’s efforts to bring this effort to fruition.”
