Significant State Grant Awarded for Construction of HUB at Mills in Bloomsburg

(HARRISBURG) – Community Strategies Group (CSG) was awarded a $1,000,000 grant through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) to assist in the construction of the HUB at Mills, according to Senator John R. Gordner (R-27) and Representative David R. Millard (R-109). 

The funds will be used to help construct commercial office space for agencies providing services to neighboring Mulberry Mills Apartments for low-income seniors.  This will ultimately include a community park, featuring Bloomsburg’s first dog park, exercise stations for senior citizens and more.

“This is a great project that will be an asset to many citizens of downtown Bloomsburg,” said Senator Gordner.  “I want to congratulate CSG for its excellent vision and a successful application.”

“This will be a fantastic addition to our town and residents of all ages will benefit from it,” added Representative Millard.

The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) 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. RACP projects are authorized in the Redevelopment Assistance section of a Capital Budget Itemization Act, have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact, and generate substantial increases or maintain current levels of employment, tax revenues, or other measures of economic activity. RACP projects are state-funded projects that cannot obtain primary funding under other state programs.
