HARRISBURG – Rep. Lori Mizgorski (R-Allegheny) announces that two improvement projects in the 30th Legislative District will benefit from an additional $400,000 in state funding, approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) in Harrisburg.

Projects receiving funding through the CFA include:

• Richland Township: Awarded a $200,000 grant to complete phase II of the Richland Community Park Improvement Project. Phase II includes the renovation and complete construction of a new concession stand in the park. Phase I was to install new accessible unisex restrooms.

• Hampton Township: Awarded a $200,000 grant for phase I of a 10-foot-wide loop trail in Hampton Township Community Park. Phase I will be 0.58 miles long and include eco-friendly permeable pavement, a water line for drinking fountains, pavement markings, signing and lighting to enhance trail safety. There will be connections to the Rachel Carson and Irma Kost Natural area.

“I am proud and excited to announce that funding to help these projects has been secured,” said Mizgorski. “Our township parks are at the center of our communities and are a recreational destination for many families. Keeping our parks up-to-date and safe is vital to continue to encourage community involvement in exercise, positive social interactions and enjoyment. I was happy to advocate for these funds.”

The CFA was established as an independent agency of the Commonwealth and holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
