Governor Tom Wolf today announced 130 new project approvals through the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) for environmental and infrastructure projects across Pennsylvania. The CFA is an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) responsible for administering Act 13 and other programs. Act 13 uses a portion of the Commonwealth’s gas well impact fees to fund initiatives such as greenways, trails and recreation, watershed restoration, and flood control.
“These projects will improve communities and enhance the quality of life for Pennsylvanians,” said Gov. Wolf. “They are the kind of improvements and upgrades that continue to make our commonwealth a truly great place to live, work and play.”
The 130 Act 13 projects approved on September 20th are in 40 counties. The total funding amount is more than $18.2 million. Locally, the approved projects are:
- $500,000 to the Upper Dublin Township Municipal Authority for the GFW District, Bodenstein Channel (Sandy Run) Project
- $75,000 to Lower Gwynedd Township for the Oxford and Pen-Ambler Parks Master Plan
- $131,669 to Whitpain Township for the Solar Light Project at Wentz Run Park for the Parking Lot Areas
