Flynn helps to bring home $4 million for Scranton projects

Scranton, Aug. 1 – State Rep. Marty Flynn, has worked to secure over $4 million in state grants for three local projects in the Scranton area.

“We have reached the point of having a partnership between county, city and state and these projects were possible because we all work together for the good of the region,” Flynn said.

“I am thrilled that the projects will benefit our economic climate, renovate properties and provide a safety-net primary care clinic to house Opioid Use Disorder Center,” Flynn said.

The projects are as follows:

  • $1.5 million for the Wright Community Center for the Wright Center for Primary Care.

  • $2 million for the Lace Building Affiliates for the Scranton Lace Adaptive Reuse.

  • $500,000 for the United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania for the South Scranton Women’s Business Incubator.

“I thank Governor Tom Wolf for approving these projects and for showing his support of Northeastern Pennsylvania,” Flynn said.

Flynn said the grants were awarded through the Redevelopment Assistance Capitol Program. It provides funding for regional, economic, cultural, civic and historical improvement projects.
