Senator Aument Announces $1.6 Million in Grant Funding for Lancaster County Communities

(HARRISBURG) – Senator Ryan Aument (R-36) announced earlier today that a number of municipalities throughout the 36th Senatorial District were chosen to receive $1.6 million in critical grant funding from the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA). The grants were awarded as part of the CFA’s PA Small Water and Sewer Program, which provides financial assistance for the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation of water supply or sanitary sewer systems throughout Pennsylvania.

The grant awards included:

  • $422, 865 to rehabilitate and repair the sanitary sewer system in Manheim Borough, Lancaster County.
  • $403,948 for stormwater infrastructure improvements along Ferndale Road in West Hempfield Township, Lancaster County.
  • $214,653 to eliminate two dead ends in the water system located in Akron Borough, Lancaster County.
  • $396,449 for storm water infrastructure improvements along Farmdale Road in West Hempfield Township, Lancaster County.
  • $200,000 to to construct a well and water treatment facility located in New Holland Borough, Lancaster County.

“Stormwater and sewer upgrades and repairs may not make for exciting headlines, but this infrastructure and its effectiveness is critical to each and every one of our communities,” said Aument. “I am thrilled that we were able to secure such significant funding for our local municipalities to perform some much-needed upgrades to this infrastructure to ensure that the residents in these communities can continue receiving these vital services.”

The Commonwealth Financing Authority is an independent agency governed by a seven-member board composed of four legislative appointees along with the secretaries of the Department of Community & Economic Development. The CFA was established in 2004 to manage and distribute Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages.
