Montgomery County House Democrats Announce $5.75M for Child Advocacy Center

(Oct 28, 2022)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 28 – Pennsylvania House Democrats in Montgomery County are congratulating the Mission Kids Child Advocacy Center of Montgomery County for being awarded $5.75 million to build its Child Advocacy and Training Center. In a joint letter to Gov. Tom Wolf, members of the Montgomery County House Democratic Delegation shared that “Child abuse is a growing public health crisis that requires urgent intervention and response. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated this issue significantly, placing an intense strain on our community’s most vulnerable members. The child advocacy center model is an evidence-based approach that has been found to provide a faster healing process for the child, more fluid collaboration between all professionals, and more effective and streamlined investigations. By providing on-site medical and mental health services, the facility would also be removing barriers to make care more accessible and equitable, as well as improving overall physical and mental health outcomes for children and their caregivers.” The Montgomery County legislators, including Reps. Matt Bradford, Tim Briggs, Joe Ciresi, Mary Jo Daley, Pam DeLissio, Nancy Guenst, Liz Hanbidge, Steve Malagari, Napoleon Nelson, Ben Sanchez, Greg Vitali, and Joe Webster, worked with the Wolf administration to help deliver the funds, which originate from the state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program .

Malagari applauds $200,000 grant for new school buses

(Oct 01, 2022)

LANSDALE, Oct. 1 – North Penn School District will receive $199,435 to replace seven old diesel school buses with seven new cleaner energy propane school buses at North Penn High School in Lansdale, state Rep. Steve Malagari, D-Montgomery, announced today. Replacing the vehicles will help to remove 3.9 tons of NOx and other pollutants from the air annually. The Driving PA Forward Truck and Bus Fleet grant program aims to take 42 old diesel trucks and buses off the road, replacing them with cleaner alternatives. “Transitioning our school buses to cleaner energy sources not only helps to combat climate change, but also helps to protect our children’s health from the poisonous fumes these diesel busses create,” Malagari said. “I am happy to see the state making these smart investments in schools like North Penn and beyond.” The funding is part of the Driving PA Forward initiative, which launched in 2018 with eight grant programs and the goal of permanently reducing nitrogen oxides in the state by replacing a large number of older diesel vehicles and equipment and promoting cleaner transportation technologies using money from Pennsylvania’s $118.5 million settlement with Volkswagen.
