Washington, D.C. – Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva today announced that nearly $28 million has been granted through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for the construction of a new federal courthouse in Yuma.
Grijalva called the construction effort “another in a long line of Recovery Act projects that will help the economy get back on its feet.” Helping towns and cities nationwide make much-needed infrastructure improvements, Grijalva said, “is the best use of federal money in this economy. We’ll be thanking ourselves for years that we made these investments now, when both the work and the finished product can benefit everyone so much.”
The announcement comes as several other Yuma-area Recovery Act projects are getting underway, including drought relief, bridge construction and a sediment removal effort being overseen by the Bureau of Reclamation.
