YUMA COUNTY, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Arizona Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema announced over $25 million will be invested in the state's "economy, resilience and safety for counties, cities and towns," including Yuma County.

In a press release, the investment will support "small businesses, wildfire and flood prevention, a stronger microchip manufacturing workforce, increased access to life-saving cancer treatment, increased access to rural health care, and more."

"By expanding access to treatment and upgrading health care facilities in rural communities, preparing Arizonans for good-paying jobs through workforce training programs, and supporting emergency response services, these projects will improve quality of life in communities across our state. Senator Sinema and I will keep working together to secure resources for the people of Arizona."

"I’m proud to deliver strong federal investments for Arizona – supporting projects and priorities that will grow our economy, protect the health and safety of our families and loved ones, secure our border, and keep families safe."
