HARRISBURG, Aug. 10 – State Rep. Patty Kim, D-Dauphin, today announced a $1 million state grant has been awarded to Second Street Associates, LLC for development of the Blackberry Office Center from the state Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program. “Congratulations to Second Street Associates, LLC for winning this highly competitive grant to help rehabilitate and improve this underutilized land in downtown Harrisburg,” Kim said. “I also want to thank Governor Tom Wolf for investing in our city through this grant.

Legislative package would help incarcerated women, parents in Pa.

(Jun 21, 2018)

HARRISBURG, June 21 – State Rep. Morgan Cephas, D-Phila., and colleagues today unveiled a package of legislation that would help incarcerated women and parents in Pennsylvania. "I'm glad that we're having vital, bipartisan discussions about criminal justice reform. I think it's crucial for those discussions to include women and girls of color," said Cephas, chairwoman of the Women and Girls of Color Subcommittee of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus. "Women are the fastest-growing segment of the incarcerated population. Since 1985, the rate of incarcerated women has increased at nearly double the male rate. The ACLU reports that African-American women and women of color are significantly overrepresented in the prison population. African-American women are 30 percent of incarcerated women in the United States, but only 13 percent of the female population. In addition, Hispanic women are 16 percent of incarcerated women but only 11 percent of all women in the U.S." Cephas plans to introduce a bill to create a Women and Girls Committee within the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. "I believe this would aid the commission in its work as it specifically relates to research and programs that will have a direct impact on women and girls." Rep. Jordan Harris, D-Phila., chairman of the PLBC, said, “This package of legislation would help support incarcerated women in the commonwealth’s prison Read more

Beware of student aid scams targeting unsuspecting students and their families

(Apr 05, 2018)

The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) is warning students and their families to be wary of financial aid scams that could expose them to significant financial loss and identity theft. In one recent example, scammers were fraudulently representing themselves as PHEAA employees in order to collect personal information by claiming that a student had “won” a PA State Grant award. The PA State Grant Program is funded by the Commonwealth and administered by PHEAA. PA State Grant awards are determined by a student’s financial need and can never be offered up as a prize - nor can anyone be promised or guaranteed to receive an award. Submitting an application is completely free and easily accessible, as are the other services provided by PHEAA in support of Pennsylvania students. The most effective way to avoid becoming the victim of a scam is to be alert and vigilant when asked by anyone to provide any form of personal information or when engaging in financial transactions. Recent scams include: Student loan payback scams - Companies or individuals claim to help reduce or eliminate student debt in exchange for money. However, many of these offers are fraudulent, while others are unnecessary and should be avoided when no-cost assistance is available from your loan servicer and other government resources. Tuition scams - These involve someone claiming to work for your school's administrative office. They call to warn that Read more
