According to Costilla County Senior Citizens Club officials the funding will go to purchase equipment and furniture for the senior citizens facility.

On this funding, Congressman Salazar offered the following statement:

“I am very proud of the efforts that Costilla County has made over the years to grow and furnish this facility. This will be a wonderful center for our seniors and a great asset for the community. I’m honored to have helped provide the funding to make the Costilla County Senior Center a reality.”

Costilla County Senior Citizens Club Board President Amos Bernal offered the following comment on the funding:

 “Upon completion of this project the whole community will benefit through services that will provide a hot nutritious meal, and a place the community can congregate, benefiting the senior citizens of today and those of tomorrow. People like Representative Salazar and many others that desire to see Colorado prosper have made this project possible.”
