– Rep. Ann Flood (R-Northampton) today announced the awarding of over $600,000 in gaming grants for the 138th Legislative District. Flood played a crucial role in securing this funding for her district.
“Local Shared Account (LSA) grants support a variety of important needs in our local communities,” said Flood. “This grant program allows for necessary projects to be completed within our communities without burdening taxpayers throughout the district. These grants may go to fire, police and other necessary personnel that need their equipment replaced.”
“I am so happy to be able to provide these essential funds for worthy projects within the 138th district.”
Awarded on a competitive basis, the local grants are as follows:
Bushkill Township – $63,368 for an automatic license plate reader for the Fixed Site Automatic License Plate Reader (ALPR) system.
Pen Argyl Borough – $147,784 for Phase I renovations to Weona Park
Wind Gap Borough – $454,884 for a new fire truck and KME pumper for Wind Gap Fire Co. KME Fire Pumper/Rescue.
The funding was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, an independent agency that holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth. Grants are not funded by taxpayer dollars.
