Sacramento is a Finalist for Grant to Improve the River District

Sacramento Promise Zone

December 7, 2017

Sacramento is one of two California cities that are finalists for a $35 million grant aimed at developing green infrastructure in low-income communities.


The money would come from the state's Cap and Trade program.


Sacramento's plan includes adding a range of housing units, in the city's River District.


Two years ago, the River District was designated as a federal Promise Zone, one of just 22 such communities nationwide. The designation opened the neighborhood up to a host of resources and partnerships.


The grant money would also be used to build a new light-rail stop, bikeways, and several other projects.
