McClinton: $2.5 million grant to support clean-up, renovation efforts at Southwest Philadelphia Bio-Manufacturing Campus

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 6 – Pennsylvania House Democratic Majority Leader Joanna McClinton, D-Phila/Delaware, today announced a $2.5 million grant for site-clearing and renovation initiatives at the  Southwest Philadelphia Bio-Manufacturing Campus.

McClinton said the funding, supported through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, was awarded to SW Bio Care LLC.

“Philadelphia is becoming one of the leading biomanufacturing hubs in the country,” McClinton said. “Today’s funding is a clear representation of that, and I look forward to all the jobs and opportunities the biotech industry will bring to our city in the future.”

McClinton said the funding will support clearing the campus of debris; remediating all environmental contamination; building out infrastructure for traffic, logistics and micro-mobility accessibility; creating spaces for manufacturing, warehousing, labs and offices; and enacting designated spaces for training, education and workforce upskilling.

RACP is 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 the Capital Budget Itemization Act, have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact, and generate substantial increases or maintain current levels of employment, tax revenues, or other measures of economic activity.

RACP projects are state-funded projects that cannot obtain primary funding under other state programs.
