Kinkead: $61K in funds to support Bellevue remediation project
HARRISBURG, May 25 – The Commonwealth Financing Authority has awarded the borough of Bellevue a $61,630 grant to demolish and rehabilitate three vacant structures, state Rep. Emily Kinkead announced today.
“These properties, which were previously deemed as uninhabitable by borough officials, will be torn down and then eligible for reuse as a side yard, to enlarge an existing yard, or for parking through the county’s Vacant Property Recovery Program,” Kinkead said. “Addressing issues of blight and freeing uninhabitable properties up for alternative uses improves the overall quality of life in our communities, now and in the years to come. I am excited to see Bellevue get funds to continue to revitalize this beautiful borough.”
The Commonwealth Financing Authority provides funding for a multitude of projects that help communities succeed, including those focused on development, water quality, energy infrastructure and more.
