Matzie: Nearly $435,000 in new funding secured for Hopewell, Aliquippa projects

Brings total project funding to nearly $3 million this year

AMBRIDGE, Nov. 19 – Major infrastructure and housing projects in Hopewell and Aliquippa are getting new infusions of funding, thanks to additional grants totaling $434,350 from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, state Rep. Rob Matzie announced today.

Matzie, D-Beaver, said the funding includes an additional $250,000 to G&B Development Hopewell LLC for major public improvements to the Hopewell Business Park (bringing total funding for the project to $2 million this year) and an additional $184,350 to the Beaver County Industrial Development Authority for The Bricks affordable housing project (bringing total project funding to $934,350 this year).

“Securing additional funds for The Bricks Project maintains my commitment to the city of Aliquippa and Mayor Dwan Walker to partner on projects important to their community,” Matzie said. “The Hopewell Business Park has been a workplace destination since its construction decades ago, and this project will allow the business park to grow to meet the demands of the airport corridor.”  

The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program is administered by the Office of the Budget for acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects.
