Phillips-Hill announces $652,053 for York County History Center

YORK – Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) announced a $652,053 grant through the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) for the York County History Center.

The York County History Center is moving into the former Met-Ed steam plant site on the corner of West Philadelphia Street and North Pershing Avenue in York. The grant will help with infrastructure on and around the site, including traffic and pedestrian improvements, utility relocations and streetscape improvements.

“This funding will help provide much-needed transportation improvements for the forthcoming history center in the City of York,” Phillips-Hill said. “I’m grateful that the History Center applied for this grant and that the CFA saw the merits throughout this competitive grant application process. This will turn a blighted property into a community beacon to be enjoyed by generations in the years to come.”

The total project cost is $950,015.
