HARRISBURG – Four local projects are being awarded funding by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, according to House Republican Transportation Committee Chairman Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin).

“These are projects I was happy to go to bat for after the awardees took the original initiative of applying for these competitive grants,” Benninghoff said. “Each of them will be used to better their surrounding community and improve the quality of life for everyone who frequents them.”

The four recipients and the specific projects and grant details are as follows:

Gregg Township – improvements to the Old Gregg School Community and Recreation Center ($500,000).
Millheim Borough - improvements to public drinking water system ($400,000).
Nittany Valley Joint Recreation Authority – improvements to the Kepler Pool in Bellefonte ($500,000).
Penn Township - new dump truck ($100,000).

“There are strict parameters for use of all these grants,” added Benninghoff. “Among other things, they may not be used for salaries and operating expenses or costs incurred prior to awarding of the grant. Grant writing is not an easy task, and I applaud these individual recipients for whom the hard work has paid off.”

Questions about this or any other state-related issue can be directed to Benninghoff’s Bellefonte district office at 814-355-1300 or his Reedsville district office at 717-667-1175.
