Costa Announces $2.8 Million to Build New Delano Community Center

Washington, DC- Rep. Jim Costa announced today that the City of Delano has been awarded a $2.8 million loan from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to build a new multipurpose community center. The new 13,000 square foot facility will replace the current community center that is over 40 years old and include a gym, basketball courts, and stage.

“Making our cities more appealing to families is a major factor in attracting businesses to invest in our Valley,” said Costa. “With this loan, the city will be able to move forward with their new community center that will provide entertainment and meeting space for the people of Delano.”

HUD’s Section 108 Loan Guarantee program boosts communities’ economic development efforts. These low-interest loans provide funds for economic development, housing rehabilitation, public facilities, and large-scale physical development projects. To date, there has not been a single default on repayment of Section 108 Loans.
