President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2024 Budget Proposes Investments in California Buildings
SAN FRANCISCO - The Biden-Harris Administration announced today that the President’s Budget for Fiscal Year 2024 includes funding for improvements to federal buildings in Sacramento and Los Angeles. The Budget details a blueprint to grow the economy from the bottom up and middle out, lower costs for families, and more.
The Budget proposes critical investments in the American people that will help lay a stronger foundation for shared growth and prosperity for generations to come.
“The President’s Budget reflects smart investments that will help GSA make cost-saving upgrades to federal buildings, bolster the nation’s cybersecurity, and improve how the government delivers digital services to millions of Americans,” said GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan. “In addition, for the first time ever, the President’s Budget includes a provision that will guarantee full access to the Federal Buildings Fund while preserving Congress’s discretion to decide on and authorize investments - this is a game-changing provision that will enable GSA to modernize and consolidate the federal footprint, saving taxpayers millions and creating good-paying jobs in local communities.”
In California, the President’s FY2024 budget request for GSA includes:
Wilshire Boulevard Federal Building | Los Angeles | $34,619,000
This $34.6 million project will restore the fire-damaged East Annex that includes seismic upgrades, exterior and interior construction, mechanical, electrical, plumbing replacement, and fire and life safety work. The project also proposes a design of the future repair and alteration project that will address critical seismic deficiencies, abate asbestos containing material, and replace building systems in the main tower of the federal building.
I Street Federal Building | Sacramento | $18,546,000
This $18.5 million project will modernize about 25,000 square feet of vacant space for the Social Security Administration’s Office of Hearings Operations. The agency now operates in a leased location outside downtown Sacramento. This project will bring a critical public service into the Federal Building and result in significant cost savings for taxpayers.
“These projects will strengthen public infrastructure, create good jobs, improve sustainability, and address key building infrastructure needs in the region,” said Sukhee Kang, Pacific Rim Regional Administrator. “We are excited for the opportunity to improve these facilities and the economic opportunity these projects will bring to the local communities.”
