RED LION- Rep. Stan Saylor (R-York) announced two grants for organizations in York County. The first is a $652,053 multimodal grant for the York County History Center. The York County History Center is currently designing a new facility which will be located at West Philadelphia Street and North Pershing Avenue in York. The grant will be used to make improvements to the current railroad track that runs close to the new facility and improve pedestrian and vehicular traffic flows. The multimodal grant was made available as a result of funding provided for in Act 89 of 2013.
“Our York County History Center is a vibrant place of learning that serves the critical role of connecting today’s York County with our past. I was proud to secure funding that will enhance the experience of the history center and make it easier for visitors to come and enjoy all the wonderful programs the center has to offer.”
The second grant is a $425,741 Dairy Investment Program grant for Caputo Brothers Creamery in Spring Grove. This grant will help the creamery expand its cheese processing facility. The funding comes from the Dairy Investment Program, which is $5 million in funding that was made available with the passage of the current year’s state budget.
“Our dairy farmers play an intricate role in York County’s economy. Every year these farmers face tougher and tougher challenges trying to keep family-owned farms opened. This grant will help Caputo Brothers process more dairy, which in turn will in turn allow our local dairy farmers to have easier access to the market to sell their milk. This is a critical project for our local farming community, and I was very happy to secure this needed funding.”
