Kinsey secures $3 million in state funding for two local projects

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 21 – State Rep. Stephen Kinsey, D-Phila., announced today that $3 million in state grants will be coming to his legislative district in northwest Philadelphia for two local projects.

One grant is worth $2.5 million and was awarded to Logan West Associates for the Logan Triangle Sitework project to transform the Logan Triangle. Specifically, the project will address sitework and related activities to prepare the site for further development.

“Logan Triangle has been a neglected area of my district for a long time, and this money to transform it should bring great opportunities for the people of northwest Philadelphia,” Kinsey said. 

The other grant is worth $500,000 and was awarded to Mastery Charter School-Pickett Campus for renovations to the campus sports field. The goal after completion of the project is to open the field to the Germantown community.

“It is great to see the sports field at Mastery Charter get renovations. This field is great for Mastery’s students, but also will be beneficial to the entire Germantown community and give people a place to be outside and active,” Kinsey said.

The funding comes from the state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects.

RACP projects are authorized in the Redevelopment Assistance section of a Capital Budget Itemization Act, have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact, and generate substantial increases or maintain current levels of employment, tax revenue or other measures of economic activity.
