Kulik: $450K awarded for renovation projects in Stowe, Robinson townships

HARRISBURG, Sept. 15 – State Rep. Anita Kulik, D-Allegheny, today announced that a combined total of $450,000 was approved for renovation projects in Stowe, Moon and Robinson townships.

Kulik said the funding was awarded through the Allegheny County Gaming Economic Development Tourism Fund and approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority.

“It’s always a pleasure announcing funding, but it’s even more rewarding when it is going toward infrastructure and renovation projects right here in our community,” Kulik said. “I’m excited to see the outcome of these projects once they’re complete.”

Kulik said Stowe Township was awarded $350,000 for the replacement of a retaining wall on Stowe Avenue. The remaining $100,000 will be used by Hollow Oak Land Trust in Moon and Robinson townships to construct a trail connector.

The funds originate from the Pennsylvania Gaming Economic Development and Tourism Fund Program – a program established to fund community and economic development projects in Allegheny County through the revenue generated from all casinos. The funds are determined via a daily assessment of the licensed facility’s gross terminal revenue.

The GEDTF program provides grants for single-year and multi-year projects that promote development in Allegheny County, including economic, infrastructure and community improvements, job training, public safety, public interest and costs to administer GEDTF funds.
