CFA Awards $300,000 for Indiana County Projects

The Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) today awarded $300,000 in Small Water & Sewer Program grants for two projects in Indiana County, according to Senator Don White and Representative Dave Reed.

The Central Indiana County Water Authority received a $200,000 grant for the installation of 5,200 feet of water lines and associated valves, fittings and fire hydrants along Neal Road in Center Township.

“Providing safe and reliable water service to local residents has been one of my top priorities,” Senator White said. “This funding will support the effort by the Authority to upgrade its water system and meet the needs of their customers while reducing the financial burden to ratepayers.”

White Township received a $100,000 grant to construct a central sewage system for the village of Fulton Run to eliminate the use of malfunctioning on-lot sewage systems.

“Investing in our infrastructure is one of the most important duties of government,” said Representative Reed.  “I applaud the leadership of these municipal authorities to address deficiencies, and once again am proud to have worked with Senator White to provide financial assistance from the state level, to make these projects a reality.” 

“The Fulton Run project has been on the boards for some time since this is a unique and remote area that presents some difficulties for this sewer project,” Senator White said. “Once completed, this service will make the area more attractive for future development.”

The CFA was established as an independent agency of the Commonwealth to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages. The CFA holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
