Gordner, Rowe Announce Grants in Snyder County

(HARRISBURG) – The Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) has awarded grants to two municipalities in Snyder County, according to Senator John R. Gordner (R-27) and Representative David H. Rowe (R-85).  Through the support of both members, funds were made available through the Multimodal Transportation Fund program.

Spring Township has been awarded $790,400 for the reconstruction of Sawmill Road.  The funds will help to resurface and widen the roadway, making it safer for vehicular traffic.   Stormwater issues would also be mitigated through the installation of new storm inlets and piping along the road.

In addition, the Borough of Selinsgrove will receive $200,000 to assist with the installation of street lights along West Pine Street from High Street to University Avenue.  This would help to connect Susquehanna University’s lighting network to the Borough’s central business district.

“I was pleased to support these important projects before the CFA and I am grateful that they saw merit in the applications,” said Senator Gordner.  “These are significant dollars that will benefit the citizens of Snyder County.”

“These grants will help make critical infrastructure and safety upgrades that will benefit residents and local businesses around the region,” said Representative Rowe.

The Commonwealth Financing Agency was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus programs.
