Gordner Announces Grant for Washingtonville

(HARRISBURG) – The Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) has awarded a grant to Washingtonville Borough, Montour County, according to Senator John R. Gordner (R-27).  Through his strong support, funds were made available through the Blight Remediation program.

The grant, in the amount of $25,000, will be used for a feasibility study of the former DeLong Memorial School property.  The study would include an environmental site assessment, housing market study and analysis, commercial market study and analysis, engineering sketch plans and costs for multiple scenarios, and coordination and plan preparation with the final analysis. 

“I am pleased that the CFA recognized the importance of this application,” said Senator Gordner.  “This study will allow Washington Borough to determine the best usage of the former DeLong property for the benefits of its residents.”

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.
