Local Municipal Interests
For the City of Moreno Valley, we helped secure federal funds for various City priorities including law enforcement, vocational training, and emergency preparedness. For instance, we worked with their Representative in securing $500,000 from the Department of Homeland Security for the City’s Emergency Operations Center. We also were successful in securing $500,000 for Moreno Valley Police Department’s anti-gang program as well as $141,000 for law enforcement equipment. We worked with Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) in securing $121,000 for the “Moreno Valley Pilot Employment Training-Education Partnership Program.” The project involved working with local non-profits, education institutions, and other work-force agencies to provide vocational training for young adults, 17 to 22 years of age. The program also included the development of an internship with local businesses to put the trainees’ job skills to use upon graduation.
