San Luis, Arizona – The City of San Luis has received $459,764.00 in Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the Arizona Department of Housing to complete the San Luis Senior Expansion.
The San Luis Senior Center expansion will add a 2,880 square feet in space allowing the center to expand its multi-purpose rooms, add restrooms and remodel the 3,200 square feet of existing interior space.
Interior remodel entails, reconfiguration of the interior front entrance, fresh paint and expandable room dividers to buffer sound for multiple activities, events, and meetings held at the San Luis Senior Center.
Back in April 2019, the City of San Luis applied for the Arizona Department of Housing for Regional Account Community Development Block Grant funds for the Senior Center Expansion Project. That same month, the San Luis City Council approved to commit to matching funding to allocate for the construction and other amenities associated with the project.
