Phillips-Hill, Grove announce $4.2 million in grant to address community wellness needs

SPRING GROVE – Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) and Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) announced that a $4.2 million Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grant was awarded to the YMCA of York and York County to benefit the Roth’s Church Road Community Partnership.

This project will establish a multi-generational community hub by repurposing a former school building by repairing the roof and outfitting the facility for members of the Roth’s Church Road Partnership, including renovation and breaking out bathrooms, a community space, fire suppression system and utilities.

“I am honored to join Rep. Grove in advocating for this project, which will help to address Spring Grove Area’s wellness needs and provide important resources to the community under one roof. By working across all age groups through intergenerational programming, the community will see long-term, positive impacts,” Phillips-Hill said. “This project could be a model for regions throughout the Commonwealth by providing a one-stop-shop for these popular community programs.”

“This is a great way to prolong the life of a former school building, which has since served the community as a senior center, by ensuring it continues to be an asset to the public,” Grove said. “I commend the organization for its foresight and long-term vision to aid our community with what is essentially a one-stop-shop for resources.”  

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.
