Davis announces $87,735 grant for Levittown Library
LEVITTOWN, Oct. 18 – State Rep. Tina Davis, D-Bucks, today announced that the Levittown Library will receive $87,735 in state funding to replace deteriorated windows with energy efficient models.
“The grant money will ensure that this important community hub is warm in winter and cool in summer,” Davis said. “I’m sure that even more people will want to use this valuable resource thanks to this grant money.”
The funds are from the highly competitive Keystone Grant Program.
Keystone Grants are provided through the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund. Grants of up to $750,000 may be used for planning, acquisition, construction and rehabilitation of public libraries, and must be matched dollar-for-dollar. Examples of fundable projects include, but are not limited to, disability access improvements, new roof, replacement windows, energy efficient upgrades to heating and ventilation systems, facility expansion and new construction.
In 12 counties across the commonwealth, 19 public libraries were awarded a total of $3.25 million in Keystone Grants.
