AARP Awards City Community Challenge Grant
On Wednesday, July 17, AARP announced that the City of West Sacramento has been awarded a 2019 AARP Community Challenge Grant in the amount of $10,000, which will be matched with $10,000 in Measure E funds previously approved by the City Council. Grant and match funds will be used to install smoke alarms in older residents’ homes through a collaboration with the Red Cross, and to create fire safety promotional materials targeting seniors. Work on the grant is expected to begin immediately, and the project will be complete by November, 2019.
