HARRISBURG – State Rep. Marcia Hahn (R-Northampton County) today announced that nearly a quarter of a million dollars has been awarded for a pipeline extension project in Northampton County by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) Pipeline Investment Program.
A grant of $249,229 was awarded to Lehigh Valley Economic Investment Corporation for the extension of natural gas service to 138 residential parcels in Bethlehem Township, Northampton County. This grant will help fund the extension of approximately 9,800 linear feet of new gas pipeline and will also make natural gas service available to 5 to 10 new businesses. These funds cover roughly half of the project’s total project cost of $498,459.
“I am very pleased to announce the approval of these funds for a crucial project in the 138th District,” Rep. Hahn said. “This new, critical infrastructure will ensure these homes and businesses will have their energy needs met in a modern, efficient manner.”
The funds for the CFA Pipeline Investment Program came from a reallocation of other CFA program funds. This year, a total of $30 million was reallocated to the Pipeline Investment Grant program. Approximately $14.529 million remains available for additional grants.
