Pelosi Announces $2.2 million for Redevelopment of Hunters Point Shipyard

October 6, 2003

San Francicso, CA - House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced today $2.2 million in new federal funds to assist the City and County of San Francisco with critical infrastructure improvements for the redevelopment of the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard. Pelosi secured these funds in the FY 2004 Department of Defense Appropriations Act signed by the president on September 30, 2003.

“These funds bring us a step closer to realizing long-held dreams for the Bayview Hunters Point community - of a safe environment, of economic opportunity, and renewed community,” said Pelosi.

Congresswoman Pelosi also supported the Navy's request for $27 million to cleanup the shipyard in keeping with the Federal Facilities Agreement schedule. These funds will help ensure that the property is cleaned up and transferred on a timely basis, so that much-needed, long-awaited economic development can commence. This is the fifth year in a row that Pelosi has secured funds for the clean up and transfer of Hunters Point Naval Shipyard to the City and County of San Francisco.

“I commend those members of the Bayview Hunters Point community who have partnered with the Navy and the City and County of San Francisco to move this process forward,” added Pelosi. “Their contributions will help guarantee that the Shipyard is handed over to the people of the Bayview as a clean, safe place for this and future generations.”
