HARRISBURG, Oct. 27 – State Rep. Stephen Kinsey, D-Phila., has announced that $3.75 million in state funding for multiple projects is coming to the 201st Legislative District in northwest Philadelphia.

“Each of these projects will provide something of value to our community,” Kinsey said. “I am glad to see these funds coming to the northwest, and I believe the most will be made out of them.”

The awardees of the grants include:

  • 5616 North Broad Street Associates LLC received $1.25 million to provide stabilization to the remaining building structure at 5616-20 N. Broad St.
  • Nicetown Community Development Corp. received $750,000 to rebuild the Barrett Playground.
