Phillips-Hill: More Than $5.6 Million Awarded for Community Improvement Projects in York County

HARRISBURG – Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-28) today announced more than $5.6 million in Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) funding is being awarded for local projects.

“The 28th Senatorial District received significant funding that will be used to offset the financial burden residents would have otherwise felt for important infrastructure updates,” Phillips-Hill said. “When so many families are struggling with ever-rising costs and inflation, this money is all the more appreciated, so I am glad I could advocate to direct it our way.”

The following projects were funded through the CFA Local Share Account (LSA) program, which uses gaming revenue to support projects in the public interest across the commonwealth:

  • Dallastown Borough received $1 million for the Colonial Park Sewer System Extension Project.
  • Delta Borough Municipal Authority received $608,875 for a stormwater improvement project.
  • Glen Rock Water Authority received $981,000 for water line replacement.
  • Hellam Township received $80,487 for telecommunication upgrades at the Hellam Municipal Center.
  • Jackson Township Sewer Authority received $731,136 for sewer interceptor improvements.
  • Jefferson Codorus Joint Sewer Authority received $242,455 for improvements to the wastewater treatment plant in Codorus Township.
  • Wrightsville Borough, on behalf of the Susquehanna National Heritage Area, received $500,000 for acquisition of an 87-acre Mifflin farmstead in Wrightsville Borough and Hellam Township.
  • The York County Rail Trail Authority received $1 million to construct a mile-and-a-half extension of the Hanover Trolley Trail in Spring Grove Borough, Jackson Township and West Manchester Township.

Additionally, Spring Garden Township received $500,000 to replace the Rathton Road Bridge through the CFA’s Multimodal Transportation Fund program. The program encourages economic development and ensures that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to Pennsylvania residents.

The CFA was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development to administer the commonwealth’s economic stimulus packages. The Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act of 2004 provides for the distribution of gaming revenue through the CFA and its LSA program.
