HARRISBURG – Sen. Devlin Robinson (R-37) announced that two Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grants totaling $2.5 million were awarded to Allegheny County.
“Investing in the necessary infrastructure for our communities is investing in Pennsylvania’s future,” Robinson said. “I am proud to support funding for the two Allegheny projects, and I look forward to seeing the economic and community benefits that will follow.”
The first grant in the amount of $1.5 million was awarded to Moon Marketplace in Moon Township for the enhancement of Diamond Ridge, including walking trails, sports courts and a social space.
The Township of North Fayette is receiving $1 million for the construction of North Fayette Boulevard, a proposed roadway connection to the regional shopping destination at The Pointe at North Fayette. This roadway will provide road access to previously inaccessible properties, allow for future development at previously inaccessible properties and include the construction of new infrastructure, water and sanitary sewer lines, national gas lines and pedestrian lighting and sidewalks with ADA accessibility.
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 state funded and cannot obtain primary funding under other state programs.
