Matzie: Nearly $72,000 secured for improvements to Center at the Mall

AMBRIDGE, May 17 – Improvements are coming to Beaver County’s Center at the Mall thanks to new funding of $71,910 from the Department of Aging, state Rep. Rob Matzie announced today.

Matzie, D-Beaver, said the funding from the Senior Community Center grant program will enhance a key community resource.

“The center provides a place for thousands of area seniors to connect, engage and stay active,” Matzie said. “It’s hugely popular, but staff have identified some improvements needed to ensure visitors continue enjoying the best possible experience. Securing this new funding will enable those renovations to move forward.”

The funding is part of a package of $2 million awarded to senior centers throughout the state for capital improvements and renovations, programs and services, nutrition and technology, and other resources. Funding for the grants comes from the Pennsylvania Lottery.
