In a blow to California and other states with large immigrant populations, the Senate voted Friday to bar the Census Bureau from counting illegal aliens in the 1990 population count. "I'm stunned," said Santa Ana City Council member Miguel A. Pulido. Pulido and other Santa Ana council members say that the 1980 census substantially under-counted its population at 215,000. The city has been lobbying hard to have its illegal alien population--estimated at 50,000--included in the 1990 count.

A federal report has recommended that Orange County and a coalition of nonprofit groups be required to return $70,000 in federal funds because they spent the money in violation of guidelines. According to the report issued this week, the Orange County Housing and Community Development Department and the Mercy House Coalition in Santa Ana spent nearly $300,000 of a grant without proving that the expenditures met requirements of a federally funded homeless program.

Police on Thursday afternoon launched the city's second major narcotics sweep under an experimental, federal anti-crime program. Unlike a June 12 sweep which resulted in 30 arrests, Thursday's crackdown on several blocks of Myrtle Street yielded only four arrests. Police said the handful of arrests was a sign that their presence and the city's Operation Weed and Seed program was proving to be a success.

Santa Ana and Anaheim increased their census participation more than any other major cities in the nation, federal officials said Tuesday, putting them on track to receive more government funding. The showing caps an all-out campaign that marshaled everyone from street vendors to local doctors and teachers in a push for the most complete count possible.

Santa Ana Mayor Miguel A. Pulido Jr. was on a business trip in Mexico City last Friday when the White House tracked him down with a request: Could he be in Washington on Wednesday morning for a news conference? Pulido suspected immediately what turned out to be true: The city had been named a federal "empowerment zone," a designation that will bring Santa Ana $10 million a year over the next 10 years to improve poor neighborhoods.

The City Council will decide Monday how it will distribute $8 million in federal community development block grant funds. The city's Human Relations Commission evaluated requests for funding from dozens of community groups and has recommended that the biggest chunk--$250,000--go to the Santa Ana Police Department for its helicopter program. The commission also suggested the city dedicate $199,000 for Santa Ana's P.R.I.D.E.

Police have received an additional $50,000 for the Weed and Seed program, which aims to curb crime in southwest Santa Ana neighborhoods with stepped-up patrols, and to reseed the area with social services. Santa Ana was one of the first cities nationwide to participate in the U.S. Justice Department program. Police say about $2.8 million in federal money has been devoted to the area over the last seven years, helping to bring dramatic reductions in crime.

A street widening program and the new city jail will be the largest recipients of federal block grants under a spending plan approved by the City Council this week. The disbursement of $8.9 million worth of Community Development Block Grant money was the council's final major action on the 1996-97 budget. Later votes and discussions may involve proposed minor fees and disbursements. About $7.5 million of the money designated this week will go to city projects.

Santa Ana has received an additional $500,000 for its participation in the federal Weed and Seed program designed to fight crime and revitalize victimized neighborhoods. The Justice Department in 1992 chose that city and 19 others for the pilot project and granted Santa Ana more than $1 million for youth programs and increased police patrols. Santa Ana police and the district attorney have said that Weed and Seed money contributed to numerous arrests.

The City Council has awarded $1.2 million in federal grants to dozens of local community groups and city programs, handing out the largest portions to police, recreation and anti-gang programs. The council unanimously awarded the Community Development Block Grants to more than 40 programs at its regular meeting Monday night. After approving the grants, City Councilwoman Patricia McGuigan said she wished the city could offer more assistance to financially strapped community service programs.

Santa Ana will be receiving $5.35 million in federal funds for two street-widening projects. The Orange County Transportation Authority recently approved $60 million for similar projects throughout the county, with funding coming from the Federal Regional Surface Transportation Program. For improvements to Bristol Street and the Memory Lane bridge, the city will be required to match 12% of the funding, or $642,000. Construction may begin as early as late summer.

You'd think $100 million in free federal money would solve a host of problems for any economically battered area. Santa Ana officials certainly hope so as they set out to revitalize three of the city's most beleaguered neighborhoods through a federal urban empowerment zone--one of 15 awarded nationwide this year. Over the next decade, they plan to combine the federal funds with $2.5 billion in local private and public programs to turn the neighborhoods around.

Now that they have the money--some of it, anyway--Santa Ana officials said Monday that they will create a 22-member interim board next month to decide how the city is to spend as much as $100 million in federal money to revitalize three of its poorest neighborhoods. Creating the board is a major step in developing an empowerment zone for the neighborhoods because it will design the bureaucratic structure--including how the permanent board will be selected--for doling out federal money.

Santa Ana's designation as an "empowerment zone" in Washington on Wednesday will bring the city as much as $100 million in federal funds for its poorest neighborhoods, but it is far from assured that the ambitious economic development program will actually improve the lives of residents.

A House subcommittee Wednesday authorized the remaining $25 million necessary for construction of the Santa Ana Federal Courthouse, which is expected to provide much-needed space for 15 judges. The money is the balance of $123 million approved by Congress last year for the courthouse, to be named after former President Ronald Reagan.

The smoke clouds that formed over Los Angeles during the May riots proved to have a silver lining for disadvantaged youths in Santa Ana. When the looting stopped and the fires were finally extinguished, President Bush announced that additional financial aid would be funneled to several cities in the nation to ease the plight of inner-city youths like those in South Los Angeles, where high rates of unemployment had spawned anger and frustration.
