The State Department of Community and Development has awarded a grant to the city of Tustin for improvements at Frontier Park. The $267,700 grant was provided through the Housing Related Parks Program.
According to the press release, the HRP was developed to increase the overall supply of housing to lower income households by providing financial incentives to cities and counties with newly constructed low income housing. Tustin qualifies through its affordable housing programs.
Tustin intends to use the funds for improvements to the park such as sprayground recycled water equipment (rather timely, due to the drought) and other amenities.
