Briggs announces $50,000 grant for Ardmore business district improvements

KING OF PRUSSIA, May 18 – State Rep. Tim Briggs today announced the approval of a $50,000 Keystone Communities grant to continue improving building façades in the Ardmore Business District.

The project will help complete at least 10 façades.

“Congratulations to Ardmore Initiative for this deserving grant award,” said Briggs, D-Montgomery. “Small-business development is a team effort, beginning with the entrepreneurs who pour their lives’ work into their trades, but also for the benefit of the community at large.

“Small businesses comprise a huge economic driver not just for our region, but across the state. Ardmore’s accomplishments reflect highly on our community.”

Administered by the Department of Community and Economic Development, the Keystone Communities program is designed to encourage the creation of partnerships between the public and private sectors in the community, supporting local initiatives that grow and stabilize neighborhoods and communities; ensure social and economic diversity; and enhance the overall quality of life for residents.
