Emrick, Scavello Announce Local Project Grants
HARRISBURG - State Reps. Joe Emrick (R-Mt. Bethel) and Sen. Mario Scavello
(R-Northampton/Monroe) are pleased to announce a series of grants being awarded to three Northampton County entities in the 137th Legislative District by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA). 
“We would like to congratulate these three groups, which earned the grants as part of a highly competitive process,” Emrick said. “Their applications are evaluated on a number of criteria, including economic impact, local financial support and project readiness. 

The $645,000 in grants was made available by the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act’s Local Share Account. No taxpayer dollars are directly used in the funding of these grants, which are generated solely by the Mount Airy Casino in Mount Pocono.

The three grants recipients are as follows: 

  • East Bangor Borough - $400,000 to address storm water management system issues. 
  • Nazareth Borough - $100,000 for an HVAC system in the borough’s municipal building and $45,000 for building improvements to Harold V. Knecht American Legion Post 415.
  • Roseto Borough - $100,000 for windows and American With Disabilities Act-approved bathrooms for a borough-owned building.
Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Emrick’s district office at (570) 897-0401 or (610) 746-5090.
