Daley announces grants for three projects in Montgomery County

HARRISBURG, Sept. 19 – State Rep. Mary Jo Daley, D-Montgomery, announced state grants totaling $739,559 were awarded for three projects in Montgomery County by the Commonwealth Financing Authority.

 

The CFA approved two grants through the PA Small Water and Sewer Program.

 

The Borough of Conshohocken Authority was awarded $341,559 to help rehabilitate the Regional Sanitary Sewer Interceptor. This project will allow the sewer system to operate more efficiently for the residents of Conshohocken, West Conshohocken, and Plymouth Township. The Whitemarsh Township Authority was awarded $323,000 to assist with the rehabilitation of the wastewater treatment plant. This second project will help to improve the treatment plant’s effluent water quality.

 

The third CFA approved grant was awarded to Plymouth Township for $75,000 through the Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program. The funds from this project will support construction of an outdoor classroom and plaza at the Harriet Wetherill Park Nature Center. The new outdoor area will provide Americans with Disabilities Act access to the nature center, learning space for environmental education, and an area for events in the park.

 

“Each project approved by the CFA serves a valuable purpose within our community with regards to development and support of our local infrastructure,” Daley said. “Congratulations to all of the applicants for securing the necessary funds to help bring these projects to completion.”

 

The CFA is an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development, established in 2004 to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus package.
