HARRISBURG – State Rep. Jim Struzzi (R-Indiana) is hoping that local government and nonprofit organizations will take advantage of a great opportunity to gain funding support.
“Nearly $1 million alone was awarded locally last year through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s Local Share Account (LSA) program,” said Struzzi. “Grants for new township roads, new township equipment, and funding for emergency service items are just a few examples of potential projects for which the money could be used, and the deadline to apply is Nov. 30.”
Projects must be deemed to be in the public interest, cost between $25,000 and $1 million and be owned and maintained by an eligible applicant or a nonprofit organization. Potential applicants include individual counties, boroughs, and townships; municipal authorities; economic development agencies; and redevelopment authorities.
Grants are facilitated through distribution of gaming revenue by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, which was established in 2004 to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages. Anyone who needs more information or is interested in submitting a grant application should visit www.dced.pa.gov and search “LSA Grants.”
Questions about this or any state government issue should be directed to Struzzi’s Indiana district office at 724-465-0220.
