HARRISBURG, Sept. 21 – State Rep. Liz Hanbidge, D-Montgomery, today announced the awarding of $206,669 in Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program grant funding to Lower Gwynedd and Whitpain Townships to enhance existing outdoor recreational space, and propel forward plans to redevelop community parks. The funding was made available through the Commonwealth Financing Authority and will be used to cover the costs of installing new energy efficient, solar LED lighting in the parking lot areas of Wentz Run Park in Whitpain Township, as well as creating a master plan to revitalize two township parks in Lower Gwynedd Township. Whitpain Township received $131,669 and Lower Gwynedd received $75,000 in this latest round of funding. “Providing safe, well-maintained outdoor recreational space is the keystone to a healthy, active community,” Hanbidge said. “These grant dollars will go toward ensuring Montgomery County continues upholding our excellent reputation of investing in our shared community space. “The exciting news that this funding will get us one step closer to two revitalized parks in Lower Gwynedd Township is a breath of fresh air. I applaud this funding and look forward to these envisioned projects becoming tangible, community-driven assets.” Lower Gwynedd Township Supervisor Danielle Duckett welcomed this influx in grant funding to rejuvenate two of the community parks. “Lower Gwynedd is thrilled to receive Read more

HARRISBURG, July 12 – The Council of State Governments has announced that state Rep. Liz Hanbidge has been selected to participate in the 2022 CSG Henry Toll Fellowship. Hanbidge is the only Pennsylvanian included in this year's cohort and the first Pennsylvanian selected since 2019. Bringing together 48 individuals representing 32 states from several sectors of state government, the Henry Toll Fellowship is the nation’s premier leadership development program for state government officials. “While the CSG Henry Toll Fellows come from every region of our nation, from both political parties and all three branches of state government, they share one thing in common — they are all people of purpose with a passion for public service,” said CSG Executive Director/CEO David Adkins, a former Kansas state senator and 1993 Toll Fellowship alumnus. “Toll Fellows are selected based on their demonstrated commitment to solve problems, to work collaboratively to get things done, and their belief that state government can and must be a force for good.” "I’m honored to have been selected as a Toll Fellow,” said Hanbidge, D-Montgomery. “I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from and with other equally dedicated public servants from across the country.
