Big grants awarded to Genesee, Bradford PA

Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin today announced the approval of $6.6 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding for projects in Centre, Clinton, Forest, Fulton, Huntingdon, McKean, Northumberland, Perry, and Potter counties.
"It’s important for the commonwealth to continue to play a more strategic role in local government and municipal interaction by guiding investments to the infrastructure of our communities to support the influx of jobs that pay for Pennsylvanians,” Davin said. “The funding announced today will sustain these efforts and enable our communities to effectively address local community development needs and improve the lives of the residents.”
