HARRISBURG – Five grants totaling nearly $880,000 are headed to five Clearfield County municipalities for use in improving infrastructure, according to state Rep. Dallas Kephart (R-Clearfield/Cambria). Philipsburg Borough in Centre County also approached Kephart specifically and was awarded nearly $310,000.

“Our constituents expect their hard earned tax dollars to be put to work as investments in their communities,” Kephart said. “The local officials who initiated this process through grant applications deserve credit for taking initiative to meet local needs.”

The Commonwealth Financing Authority, which holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth, distributed the grants through its Multimodal Transportation Fund. Municipalities awarded are as follows:

• $309,989 to Philipsburg Borough for roadway reconstruction along Powder Magazine Road and Port Matilda Highway.
• $190,740 to Gulich Township for repaving three streets.
• $109,445 to Morris Township for repair and repaving of Cemetery Road.
• $190,250 to Westover Borough for street rehabilitation.
• $191,705 to Boggs Township for repaving Hilltop Road.
• $197,803 to Cooper Township for reconstruction of Firehouse Road.

Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Kephart’s Clearfield district office at 814-765-0609, his Hastings office at 814-247-6210 or his Osceola Mills office at 814-339-6544.
