Conklin: Mo Valley EMS awarded $1 million state grant

State funding will help pay for new ambulance facility in Rush Township

STATE COLLEGE, April 22 – State Rep. Scott Conklin, D-Centre, today announced that Moshannon Valley EMS has been selected to receive a $1 million state grant to fund a new ambulance facility in Rush Township.

“I know the wonderful work that the folks at Moshannon Valley EMS do for our communities, so when I had the chance to help them find funding for their new ambulance facility, I went to bat for them – just like they do for us every day,” Conklin said. “MVEMS provides a critical service to the people of Philipsburg and the surrounding communities, and I want to thank everyone who has worked on this project.”

The $1 million state grant, awarded through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, will support the construction of a new ambulance facility with office space, training room, a staff fitness room; a service documentation room; staff lounge and kitchenette; sleeping rooms for 6 staff; and garage space for up to 8 vehicles.

Since taking office Conklin has worked tirelessly to make sure the needs of Centre County are front-and-center in Harrisburg, whether that’s fighting for state budgets that invest in education and local communities, to policies that put working Pennsylvanians – and not big corporations – first.
