Miller: More than $220K awarded for renovation project to local outreach center
HARRISBURG, Nov. 12 – State Rep. Dan Miller, D-Allegheny, announced Tuesday that $221,267 in state funding was awarded for a rehabilitation project at the Brookline Teen Outreach Center.
Miller said the funding was awarded through the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County.
“This funding is significant in the fact that it will help fund the renovation project for a center that helps local youth be the best version of themselves through educational and social opportunities, workshops, tutoring and much more,” Miller said. “I’d like to thank the Commonwealth Financing Authority for approving this funding.”
Miller said the funding will go toward a waterproofing and water damage renovation project. Specifically, the project will entail water control, mold remediation and structural repairs to the outreach center after damage was caused by heavy rains and stormwater runoffs.
The RAAC grant was among several announced today that are funded by the Allegheny County Gaming Economic Development Fund, which is financed by gaming activity in the county. The fund is administered by the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County and the state Commonwealth Financing Authority.
