Over $7 Million Approved for Community Enhancements

Rancho Cordova, CA (MPG) - At the June 5th City Council Meeting, Rancho Cordova City Council Members approved 46 community projects in addition to ongoing City programs for Community Enhancement Fund grants for the 2017/2018 fiscal year, totaling $7.1 million.

The Community Enhancement Fund is funded by Measure H, a half-cent local sales tax measure that was approved by Rancho Cordova voters on November 4, 2014.

The fund generates approximately $7 million in sales tax revenue per year, with roughly $2 million going to community projects and the remaining $5 million allocated to public safety, public works, economic development and other public projects.

Stacy Delaney, the City’s Community Enhancement Analyst who manages the fund said the City received 69 grant applications for the 2017/2018 funding cycle.

There were 46 approved community projects for 2017 submitted by a range of individuals, organizations, businesses, and community partners.

“The Community Enhancement Fund is an incredible program funded by the community for the community, and we’re excited to see what this round of projects brings to Rancho Cordova,” said Stacy Delaney, the City’s Community Enhancement Analyst.

“Each year, these dollars go towards meaningful projects that make a big difference in our community” said Mayor Donald Terry. “The Community Enhancement Fund has become an integral part of our City,”
