Munroe announces Commonwealth Finance Authority grants for region

HARRISBURG, March 16 – State Rep. Brian Munroe, D-Bucks, announced that the Commonwealth Financing Authority approved today nearly $1.5M in grant funding for the 144th Legislative District.

The following projects were granted:

  • Bucks County Redevelopment Authority, Shenandoah Woods, in Warminster Township: $600,000.
    • Bucks County Redevelopment Authority, in partnership with Warminster Township, acquired a 55-acre property, named the Shenandoah Woods site, from the U.S. Navy in 2021.  The site was a military housing complex and consisted of 199 townhouse units until it was vacated in 2011.  It is the intent of the RDA and Warminster Township to turn the current blighted brownfield into a public park and open space area to tie into the adjacent 243-acre Warminster Community Park.  The proposed project is for demolition and site preparation costs of the Shenandoah Woods property.
  • Warrington Easton LLC, Warrington Wawa Redevelopment Project: $255,000.
    • For intersection and roadway improvements as part of redeveloping a Wawa Super Store located in Warrington Township.
  • Warrington Township, Easton & Bristol Roads Intersection Improvement Project: $486,500.
    • To complete preliminary engineering to improve the intersection of Easton and Bristol Roads.

“These state grants help keep local taxes down and represent your state tax dollars coming home to our district,” Munroe said. “I’m happy to support local projects that benefit so many of our residents. Thank you to the Shapiro administration and to the municipal and county staff who made these substantial awards possible. Their hard work reflects highly on our region.”

The grants were awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, which oversees the state’s distribution of gaming revenues to support public projects.
