CFA Announces $61 Million In Funding For 276 Small Water, Sewer Projects In 49 Counties
On August 18, Gov. Tom Wolf announced $61 million in funding for 276 small water and sewer project funding in 49 counties from the Commonwealth Financing Authority.
“This vital grant program allows for costly but necessary water infrastructure improvements that would otherwise be unfeasible to smaller Pennsylvania communities,” said Gov. Wolf. “When we invest into our communities now, they benefit for years to come, and today’s approved projects will significantly improve the quality of life in these communities.”
The small water and sewer projects include the replacement of the Troy Street water main in Bradford County; improving the wastewater treatment facility in Huntingdon County; improving the above-ground reservoir rehabilitation in Lehigh County; the expansion of the Pine Grove Township water system in Schuylkill County; and the extension of the Alexander Spring Road Waterline in Cumberland County. Other projects include improvements and replacements of water mains, water treatment plants, sewer systems, and water line extensions

Municipalities and municipal authorities are eligible to apply for up to $500,000 in grant funding.
