Roebuck announces over $3 million in state funding for the 188th District

HARRISBURG, Aug. 7 – State Rep. James Roebuck announced that more than $3 million in Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grants have been awarded to the 188th Legislative District.

The following grant amounts were awarded to three entities:

  • $1 million to D.C. Humphry’s Co. Inc., a HubZone compromised of several smaller businesses. The funding is being used to help construct buildings that will connect the businesses where they are currently housed.
  • $2 million to the Community College of Philadelphia to develop a Career and Advance Technology Center at its West Philadelphia Regional Campus.
  • $480,000 to the Free Library of Philadelphia to repair and upgrade the Kingsessing facility, which is in Roebuck’s district and the McPherson Square building.   

“These three projects are expanding growth through commerce, education and community. They are fundamental in providing a strong workforce both for current and future generations,” Roebuck said. “I thank Governor Wolf for his commitment in allocating these grants to improve and benefit our community for years to come.”

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