State Awards Two Grants For Regional Development

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has given two grants totaling $750,000 to two western Pennsylvania authorities. The Johnstown Redevelopment Authority received a $250,000 grant for an inner-city river walk along the perimeter of the Greater Johnstown Technology Park, and the Cambria Somerset Authority received a $500,000 grant to construct a custom water release mechanism at the Quemahoning reservoir water intake tower to create whitewater boating on the Stonycreek River. The grants were funded by the Keystone Fund which is generated through a portion of the state's realty transfer tax.
