Centre County Projects Receive $4 Million in State Grants

Two Centre County projects were today (December 23) awarded a total of $4 million in Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grants, according to Senator Jake Corman (R-34) and Representative Kerry Benninghoff.

Dale Summit Acquisitions, L.P., received $2.5 million for the Summit Park improvements project, which includes critical infrastructure upgrades and building improvements at its main building to ensure it can be fully occupied. Project items include roof demolition and replacement, parking lot improvements, and concrete repairs for the Conviber ramp.

Centre Volunteers in Medicine (CVIM) was awarded $1.5 million for the development of a 10,000 square-foot healthcare facility. CVIM strives to provide quality healthcare while encouraging healthy living lifestyles to those in need.

“These are both excellent grants that will help our Centre County in different ways,” said Senator Corman. “CVIM plays an important role in providing essential healthcare services to underserved members of our community. The Summit Park project is another step forward in improving the economic well-being of our community and promoting job growth for our citizens.”

“During these difficult times, I am glad to have worked to provide needed financial support for these important assets to our community,” Benninghoff said. “Regardless of what faces our state or nation, I remain committed to helping our community in Harrisburg.”

RACP is 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.
