Gov. Tom Wolf announced nearly $45 million in new Community Development Block Grant-Cares Act funding to support community improvements that will help enhance the quality of life for residents.
“This funding will allow communities to make a variety of infrastructure updates,” said Gov. Wolf. “Whether it be water and sewage systems, parks, or social services, these dollars are going to help make communities better places to live, work, and play.”
Several townships will benefit from these funds, including Marion Township, Butler County, which will receive funds for a new sewage system and Cooper Township, Clearfield County, whose municipal authority will receive funds for water distribution lines. Both townships are under consent orders from the state Department of Environmental Protection. To learn more, click here for the press release.
