HARRISBURG – Sewer systems, roads, crosswalks and a host of other infrastructure improvements are contained within more than $2.5 million in grant money Rep. Tom Mehaffie (R-Dauphin) brought to Dauphin County today.

The Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) approved the grants, most of which are from Local Share Account funding. That funding stream is generated from gaming revenue, not tax dollars.

“These are important projects that directly improve the livability of our communities. They are laying a foundation for years to come, providing safe drinking water and robust recreation opportunities for our children and grandchildren,” Mehaffie said. “The work being done under this grant money will provide tangible benefits to those living and working in Dauphin County.”

Newly approved infrastructure grants include:

$500,000 for Derry Township to improve pedestrian and motorist safety.
$500,000 for Middletown Borough to improve streetscapes along Emaus Street.
$30,619 for Conewago Township to purchase a tractor that will be used to maintain the community park.
An additional $500,000 for Derry Township to improve pedestrian and motorist safety on access points to the heart of Hershey.
$225,000 for Lower Swatara Township to replace a salt shed for road maintenance.
$50,000 for Royalton Borough to buy a compact wheel loader to maintain roads, parks and other infrastructure.
$100,000 for Hummelstown Borough to improve sidewalks, crosswalks and streetscapes, including handicapped accessible curb ramps.
$200,000 for Londonderry Township to restore Conewago Creek and its streambanks.
$428,000 for Royalton Borough Authority to make needed repairs to the Water Street pump station within the sewer system.
