Pisciottano secures $99K grant to fight blight in Glassport

(Dec 02, 2021)

DRAVOSBURG, Dec. 2 – State Rep. Nick Pisciottano announced today that the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development awarded a $99,500 grant to Glassport for a borough-wide demolition project to fight blight. Pisciottano worked closely with DCED and Glassport elected officials to identify sources of additional funding for their crucial revitalization projects. “Glassport is embarking on an ambitious revitalization of its community and one of the most important steps in that project is to clear out vacant and poorly maintained abandoned properties to make them more attractive for future investment,” Pisciottano said. “These properties are detrimental to the community’s aesthetic and financial values and pose a safety hazard if not properly maintained. I commend the leadership of Glassport elected officials in pursuing this type of funding and look forward to it being used to the benefit of the whole community.” Pisciottano said the grant money will be used for engineering, bidding, asbestos abatement, demolition and site restoration for a number of commercial and residential properties throughout Glassport. Official presentment of the grant funding will occur at the Glassport Borough council meeting on Dec. 21. Read more
