– State grant funding totaling over $1.8 million has been awarded to four community development projects in the 88th District under the Local Share Account grant program, according to Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland). She was glad to advocate for the funding for her district.
“Local Share Account (LSA) grants support a variety of needs in our communities,” said Delozier. “This grant program provides significant savings to the municipalities in receipt of the dollars and allows for community building improvements and other revitalization efforts.
“LSA grants are funded by state gaming revenue. I am pleased to see that money reinvested locally, and I am grateful the following projects have received funding. These grant awards will have a positive impact our communities for generations to come. I am glad to have advocated for the funding.”
Awarded on a competitive basis, the local grants are as follows:
New Cumberland Borough, $102,123 for the planning, design, and engineering associated with the development of the West Shore Theatre Annex. The Annex will include a green room, dressing rooms and more.
New Cumberland Borough, $48,250 to develop a comprehensive Recreation, Park and Trail Network Plan that enhances and upgrades park and open space facilities and more.
Hampden Township, $985,000 to rehabilitate the Hampden Pool. The project will consist of replacing the pool gutter, filtration system, main drain and piping, and various electronic and mechanical upgrades to the filter building.
Mechanicsburg Borough, $676,365 to develop underutilized space located at 1 West Main St. by transforming the Center Square into a multi-purpose community space.
The funding was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) today. CFA is an independent agency that holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
