– Grant funding awarded today will support water system and other infrastructure improvements in Dauphin County, representing critical investments in systems that will serve generations to come, according to Rep. Joe Kerwin (R-Dauphin).
The Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) awarded grants that include:
$513,863 for Lykens Borough Authority to build a water tank that can be used when Rattling Creek is low and unable to provide water to the community.
$310,000 for the Halifax Area Water and Sewer Authority to replace segments of water main at two locations within the community.
$1 million for the Lower Paxton Township Authority to replace sewer and storm sewer infrastructure in Paxton Creek.
$100,000 for the Elizabethville Area Authority to facilitate 2,730 feet of new sewer pipes and 67 connections.
$93,024 for Jefferson Township to replace a tractor that is used for road maintenance.
$90,000 for Williamstown Borough Authority for water meter replacements for use in the borough.
“Modernizing our water, sewer and road systems not only protects residents and businesses today, but also prepares us well for the future,” Kerwin said.
“Reliable infrastructure is critical to the future of the region, and I am glad to see this funding go where it is needed most,” said Sen. Greg Rothman (R-Cumberland/Dauphin/Perry).
The Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) approved the grants from Local Share Account funding, which is generated from slot-machine revenue, not tax dollars.
