Yuma, Ariz. – Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva today congratulated the Cocopah Indian Tribe on a new $27,500 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and a $605,000 grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to rehabilitate 10 homes owned by low income Tribal residents.
“Better housing is one of the most basic and important improvements we can make in peoples’ lives, and the jobs this creates won’t be the only benefit the community sees from this project,” Grijalva said. “The federal government is right to lend a helping hand whenever it can to make Americans’ lives safer, more comfortable and more prosperous. That’s what these grants are doing, and I applaud the Tribe for putting them to good use.”
