Board of Directors Solidifies Funding Commitment for One Coachella Valley

COACHELLA VALLEY – Feb. 28, 2018 – The Desert Healthcare District’s Board of Directors yesterday approved a resolution for $6 million in expansion funding, which is $300,000 annually for 20 years of unrestricted funds, as part of the Riverside County Local Formation Commission (LAFCO) expansion application. This represents a self-funded revenue source that would support programs and services to the residents of Eastern Coachella Valley upon successful voter approval of the expansion initiative in November of this year.
