5 of 7 Economic Development Pilot Sites are in Townships 

The Shapiro Administration announced grant awards for a new pilot program, PA SITES, which made $10.6 million available to help prepare “shovel-ready” sites to attract and retain businesses. More than 100 applications were received for this program. The funds were awarded to various economic development programs in Allegheny, Bedford, Bucks, Indiana, Lehigh, Wayne, and Westmoreland counties, and five of the selected sites are in townships. Grant funds may be used for transportation access improvements, utility extensions, or grading of pad-ready sites, including redevelopment of previously used or underused sites. Click here for the press release and here to learn more about the program.
