Santarsiero, Warren announce state grant for Newtown

HARRISBURG, April 17 – Sen. Steven Santarsiero and State Rep. Perry Warren, both D-Bucks, today announced the state Department of Community and Economic Development is awarding a $40,000 grant to Newtown.

The funds are being provided through the department’s Early Intervention Program, Warren said. Grants from this program are designed to assist municipalities in creating short- and long-term financial plans to help them meet their goals.

“As a former township supervisor, I understand the importance of developing a sound financial strategy,” Santarsiero said. “With this grant, Newtown Township will be able to provide residents with even greater services.”

Warren added that this grant will provide Newtown with a financial plan for the next five years.

“This infusion of state money will not only help the community grow, but it promises Newtown a prosperous future,” Warren said.
