The California Advanced Services Fund has approximately $400 million
  annual for grant awards to unserved or underserved  areas.

Clarksburg could get funds from that pool, Capay Valley too.

I had thought Davis wouldn't qualify.

I agree with Richard about investors...
Anyone on the list have good connections
with local investors ?
