HARRISBURG — Rep. Marcia Hahn (R-Northampton) today announced that four municipalities in the 138th Legislative District will benefit from $268,039 in grant funding approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) in Harrisburg. These grants were fully funded by gaming revenues from the Northampton County Local Share Account (LSA). No tax dollars are used to fund this program.

“These projects will improve the response readiness of our local police and EMS departments, clean up our roads and make our district a more inclusive place for individuals with disabilities,” said Hahn. “I was glad to advocate for such worthy causes and pleased this funding was approved.”

Grants were awarded to the following municipalities:
• Bushkill Township – $60,000 to purchase and equip two SUVs with police technology.

• East Allen Township – $75,000 to purchase a new crack-sealing machine for use on
public roadways.

• Pen Argyl Borough – $64,999 to install ADA-accessible improvements into the borough municipal building, including renovations to the building’s social hall to continue its use as a community space, voting location, rentable facility for community and local organizations, and a municipal and council meeting area. This project will ensure residents with disabilities have entry into the building.

• Plainfield Township – $68,040 to purchase and install three autonomous license plate reading devices on behalf of the Slate Belt Regional Police Department.

The 138th Legislative District consists of the townships of Bethlehem (portion), Bushkill, East Allen, Hanover, Lower Nazareth, Moore (portion), and Plainfield and the boroughs of Bath, Chapman, Pen Argyl and Wind Gap.
