A new fiscal year begins in California on Thursday, July 1, and it appears several projects in Long Beach will benefit from a fresh round of state funding.

The state Legislature approved a budget for fiscal year 2021-22 earlier this week that includes more than $20 million for parks, community centers, health clinics and more in Long Beach. Gov. Gavin Newsom had not signed the budget as of 5 p.m. Wednesday, but officials appear confident the local funding will get his seal of approval.
