The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved an action plan seeking $8.6 million in federal funds for housing and infrastructure projects consistent with the county’s Vision Plan.

The county’s 2012-13 annual Action Plan lists projects in need of funding. If awarded, the grants will be included in the county Department of Community Development and Housing’s budget for the next fiscal year, which the board will consider for approval at a future date.

In other news, the board also approved a memorandum of understanding with the Santa Margarita Water District in Orange County, Los Angeles-based Cadiz, Inc., Fenner Valley Mutual Water Company, and the county of San Bernardino to establish a groundwater monitoring plan for a 45,000 acre swath of desert in the eastern part of the county.
