Daley announces grant for AIM Academy

HARRISBURG, Dec.22 – State Rep. Mary Jo Daley announced Friday that AIM Academy has been awarded a $500,000 Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant.

The grant will support the build-out of about 16,400 square feet of space at the Academy’s current location in Conshohocken to be dedicated to the design, construction, implementation of the AIM Careers for the Future High School and Collaborative.

“AIM Academy is a wonderful resource in our community, and I’m pleased that the state has awarded funding to help with this exciting project,” said Daley, D-Montgomery.

RACP is 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 revenues, or other measures of economic activity.

RACP projects are state-funded projects that cannot obtain primary funding under other state programs.
