HARRISBURG – More than $1.16 million in funding was awarded to municipalities and an arts organization in the 88th District as part of the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) and PA Arts and Culture Recovery (PACR) grant programs. Rep. Sheryl M. Delozier (R-Cumberland) says she was happy to help advocate for these awards.
“CFA and PACR grants provide needed and appreciated dollars to significant projects in our communities,” said Delozier. For New Cumberland and Mechanicsburg boroughs, this means financial support for wastewater projects that benefit all residents of the municipalities.
“I was glad to be an advocate for these projects, as well as the grant award for the Susquehanna Chorale, which remains one of the top vocal ensembles in the Mid-Atlantic Region.”
The grants may be used for the following purposes:
• New Cumberland Borough, $391,416 to complete the 3rd Avenue sewer project in New Cumberland Borough.
• Mechanicsburg Borough, $425,000 to perform grit removal at the Mechanicsburg Borough wastewater treatment plant.
• Lower Allen Township Authority, $340,000 to upgrade sewer interceptors in Lower Allen Township.
• Susquehanna Chorale, $11,143 to cover operating expenses for the organization in Lower Allen Township.
CFA and PACR are independent agencies. CFA holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
