​​EL PASO – The planned Mexican-American Cultural Center got a $10 million boost from the city's coffers after it restructured some debt, city leaders announced yesterday.

The center, which will be housed at the Abraham Chavez Theatre Downtown, had been allocated $5.75 million from the 2012 quality-of-life bond. But a group of Hispanic community leaders advocated for a larger center that is estimated to cost about $34.6 million, including more than $25 million to renovate the 1970s-era building that sits next to the Judson F. Williams Convention Center.

That group, Citizens for a Mexican-American Cultural Institute of El Paso, has committed to raising funds for the center, previously saying it expects to collect about $20 million toward the project.

Officials said it could take up to five years to raise the money.
