Conklin: Houtzdale awarded $75,000 state grant

Grant will help fund storm sewer replacements

STATE COLLEGE, Nov. 1 – Always on the lookout for ways to help local governments and ratepayers, state Rep. Scott Conklin, D-Centre, today announced that Houtzdale Borough has been awarded a $75,000 state grant to help offset the costs of a storm sewer replacement project.

“From my time in county government until now, I’ve always made it a point to be accessible and to work with our local governments to get jobs done,” Conklin said. “Even smaller grants like this one can have a big impact on a local community and help save costs which otherwise would have to made up by local ratepayers.”

The grant was made possible by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.
