On Tuesday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced nearly $300 million dollars in grants that will go towards local governments and tribes to help beautify public space.

The grants are targeting underserved communities throughout California, with $19 million of the funding going towards projects here in the Inland Empire.

In a press release, Governor Newsom said that the funding was a historic investment that will go towards helping remove unsightly litter from local streets and highways.

The grants funding will be going towards six different projects in the Inland Empire, including $5 million for Corona’s Green Alleys project and $4.9 million for Pomona’s Holt Avenue Corridor Project.
