City of Toppenish receives grants of $47K and $43K for Gaming Impacts from the Yakama Nation Two Percent Community Contribution Committee

The City of Toppenish and the Toppenish Police Department recently received grants in the amounts of $47,443.74 and $43,500.00 from the Yakama Nation to help with the purchase of a new patrol vehicle and with the purchase of additional Flock cameras to help in crime investigations including wanted and stolen vehicle identifications across the valley.

The funding comes from the Two Percent Community Contribution Committee. The program, part of the Tribal Gaming Compact regulated by the Washington State Gaming Commission, is designed to help minimize impacts of the Casino on the surrounding communities. Previous grants have helped with the purchase of other public safety equipment, like the recently delivered Ladder Truck purchased by the Toppenish Fire Department last year.

The City of Toppenish and Toppenish Police Department are very appreciative of the grants received and the continued commitment to enhance public safety for the people in Toppenish and the surrounding communities.
