Daley announces nearly $30,000 in grants awarded to Whitemarsh Township projects

WHITEMARSH TOWNSHIP, Nov. 19 – State Rep. Mary Jo Daley, D-Montgomery, today announced that the Commonwealth Financing Authority has awarded $29,939 in grants to two projects to improve water quality and sewer infrastructure in Montgomery County. 

The projects receiving funding are: 

  • Whitemarsh Township: $20,000 – funds to install a rain garden at the township building to treat stormwater generated before it runs off into the Wissahickon Creek. 
  • Whitemarsh Township Authority: $9,939 – funding to complete a revision of the existing sewage plan and study the potential need to upgrade or build new facilities. 

“These grants will go a long way in addressing a number of issues in our area,” Daley said. “Keeping our waterways clean and seeking how to improve our current infrastructure are all projects that are well-deserving of this funding and attention.” 

 The grants are part of the CFA Act 13 grant programs and the CFA Multimodal Transportation Fund grant program, which fund initiatives across Pennsylvania to improve greenways, recreational areas and water quality, as well as improvements to transportation infrastructure.
