Krueger announces more than $300K in grants for Nether Providence Township

FOLSOM, April 21 – State Rep. Leanne Krueger announced that Nether Providence Township was awarded more than $300,000 in state grants for several projects.

“The grants awarded today will help Nether Providence Township address issues of critical importance in our community -- making it safer and easier to walk to school or access mass transit and providing peace of mind for residents who’ve experienced flooding in their homes or properties,” Krueger said. “These are projects that improve quality of life for our neighbors, and I’m pleased to see state funding awarded to help the township make our community an even better place to live.”

Three grants for Nether Providence Township were approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority today as follows:


  • $250,000 in Multimodal Transportation funds for Walkable Wallingford – Providence Road Sidewalk, Phase II. The township plans to install 1.5 miles of new ADA-accessible sidewalk along Providence Road, from Plush Mill Road to Chester Road.

  • $42,000 in Greenways, Trails and Recreation funding to go toward Furness Park Phase II Trail Development. A recreational walking loop was constructed in Phase I, and Phase II will connect the loop to several neighborhoods north of the train station, making it safer and easier for residents to access recreational opportunities and mass transit.

  • $22,000 in CFA Watershed Restoration Protection Program funding for Palmers Lane water quality improvements. This project will help improve water quality and remediate flooding issues for residents on Palmers Lane and Briarwood Road by expanding the downstream storm sewer system.
