Brewster: Transportation Grant Approved for Brentwood

Sen. Jim Brewster said that a $65,000 state grant for Brentwood Borough has been approved for sidewalk improvements.

Sidewalk“This grant will help Brentwood complete much needed repairs,” Brewster said. “Repairs to these sidewalks will improve safety and it’s another way that the state can augment local public works initiatives.”

The grant funding is available through PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation Fund. Brewster noted the grant will help improve and repair 18,000 square feet of sidewalk.

The senator is the former mayor of McKeesport and served on council for many years. As a former local official, he said he knows of the importance of using state resources to help complete local projects.

“Accessing state funding to complete projects in our cities and towns relieves local taxpayers of the burden and returns dollars from Harrisburg,” Brewster said.

The Multimodal Transportation Fund was formed in 2013. PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation committee reviews applications submitted by local governments and organizations, and grants the funding requests for approved projects.

In Brewster’s district, there were more than $11.6 million in state grant funds from a variety of sources approved last year.
