Pelosi Wins Federal Funding for Housing and Community Development Projects

October 10, 2002

Washington, D.C. -- The House Appropriations Committee has approved more than $1.5 million in federal funding for fiscal year 2003 Bay Area housing and community development. These projects, which were funded at the request of House Democratic Whip Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), will help revitalize sections of San Francisco and provide much-needed housing and services to vulnerable populations.

"These projects will make a measurable, tangible difference in the lives of San Franciscans,” said Pelosi, a senior member of the Appropriations Committee. “These are investments in our parents and our grandparents, in our neighborhoods and our communities that will pay off for generations to come."

The projects include:

The Appropriations Committee’s bill must still be approved by the full House of Representatives, which has approved only five of 13 appropriations bills this year, despite being 10 days into the new fiscal year. The bill must then be reconciled with the Senate version of the Fiscal Year 2003 appropriations bill for Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development, and Independent Agencies.
