SAN DIEGO - The Palomar College Foundation announced today it received a $100,000 grant from the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.

The grant is an allocation by Supervisor Bill Horn from the Neighborhood Reinvestment Program and goes into effect June 19, 2019. The grant will help fund textbooks for incoming students, a new campus police vehicle for the Fallbrook center, a cargo van for the Camp Pendleton Education Center and a utility cart for the future Anita and Stan Maag Food and Nutrition Center at the San Marcos campus.

"This funding is key to making educational opportunities accessible for every local student,'' said Palomar College Foundation Executive Director Stacy Rungaitis. "Supervisor Horn's allocation of support will enable hundreds of students to gain access to resources they need, while also enhancing safety and security.''

The Neighborhood Reinvestment Program has now allocated $350,000 in the fiscal year 2018-19 after the grant for Palomar College. The program allocated $250,000 in July for a new aquatic center at the Jackie Robinson Family YMCA.

Palomar College broke ground on the Maag food pantry in March as a new and bigger home for the college's existing food pantry that had been in operation for over 30 years. The new food pantry was also funded by a donation to the school by a friend of the Maags, according to the school.
