    Feds Grant East Palo Alto $4.4M to Improve Infrastructure Against Flooding

    The federal government will award the city of East Palo Alto with a $4.4 million grant to improve stormwater infrastructure and prevent future flooding, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced Wednesday morning.

    The grant will be used with a focus on the Ravenswood

    Redevelopment Area in the northeast portion of the city just west of San Francisco Bay, and will be matched with local investments totaling $1.1 million.

    "The Trump Administration is committed to helping communities recover from natural disasters," Ross said in a statement.

    The project will be funded through President Donald Trump's Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and is expected to help create 10,900 jobs and attract $1.7 billion in private investments.
