Boyle announces $2.5 million in state funding for two projects in his district

HARRISBURG, Oct. 28 – State Rep. Kevin Boyle, D-Phila., has announced $2.5 million in state funding for two projects in the 172nd Legislative District.

These funds being awarded come from the state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program.

The awardees include:

  • The Friends of Father Judge High School, Inc. received $1 million for construction of the Career Pathways Academy Building.
  • American Oncologic Hospital Fox Chase Cancer Center received $1.5 million for modernization to its research facility.

“These are two projects that should do a lot of good for our community here in Northeast Philly,” Boyle said. “I am proud to have helped secure these grants and look forward to seeing these projects realized.”

The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program is a grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects.

RACP projects are authorized in the Redevelopment Assistance section of a Capital Budget Itemization Act, have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact, and generate substantial increases or maintain current levels of employment, tax revenue or other measures of economic activity.
