Culver, Cabell Announce $520,000 Grant for Salem Township Stormwater Project

HARRISBURG – Sen. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-27) and Rep. Mike Cabell (R-117) today announced a state grant of $520,000 has been awarded to upgrade the stormwater system in Salem Township, Luzerne County.

The grant was awarded through the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA).

“State resources like this grant can help pay for a large project that otherwise might place a significant burden on local taxpayers,” Culver said. “I look forward to the completion of this project and the positive benefits it will provide for travelers along this road. Local families and businesses that depend on this road will benefit from this state investment.”

The grant will help to pay for the first phase of construction for road stormwater improvements along Shickshinny Valley Road.

“I have worked closely with the Salem Township supervisors since taking office, and I know how important this funding is for them,” Cabell said. “I consistently hear about infrastructure needs from the many rural communities I represent, and I will continue to fight for their fair share of dollars from Harrisburg.”

The CFA was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) to administer the commonwealth’s economic stimulus packages.

Funding for this project is being delivered through the DCED Multimodal Transportation Fund grant program, which provides financial support for projects to encourage economic development and ensure a safe and reliable transportation system for commonwealth residents.
