Harrisburg – State Sen. Tommy Tomlinson (R-6) today announced the awarding of $500,000 in state grants to support a wide array of local organizations.

The 10 grants of $50,000 each are funded through the state Department of Community and Economic Development.

“It’s important that state tax dollars paid by local residents return to our communities to support worthy organizations,” said Tomlinson.

Two of the grants are being awarded to fire companies, Levittown Fire Company #2 and Edgely Fire Company.

Other grant recipients are:

  • Lower Bucks County Athletic Association for field conversions.
  • Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA) for building expansion.
  • Miracle League of Northampton Township for a playground equipment.
  • Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund of Pennsylvania for a Vietnam Veterans memorial.
  • Warwick Township Memorial Park for safety equipment and landscaping.

  • Langhorne Community Memorial Association for historical renovations to the Richardson House.

“I am pleased to have secured these grants, which will help pay for projects important to communities across the Sixth Senatorial District,” said Tomlinson. “Renovations, expansions and other capital improvements come with a big price tag, and it’s important for the state to assist organizations that do so much for our communities.”
