Washington, DC – Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (FL-17) announced a $624,479 grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The grant will be awarded to the City of Opa-Locka and will go towards urban development.

“I’m pleased to announce this critical funding for urban renewal in Opa-Locka,” said Congresswoman Wilson. “From day one, my focus has been jobs, jobs, jobs, and this federal assistance will go a long way to make our community a better place to live, work, and raise our children.”

The funding will support urban development projects as part of Opa-Locka Vision 20/20, an initiative to make the city more livable, competitive, and sustainable. The project is overseen by the Opa-Locka Community Development Corporation (OLCDC).
