Sen. Brewster Announces $2.75 Million in State Funds for Three Local Projects


State Senator Jim Brewster announced three state grants totaling $2.75 million for local development projects.

“These renovation and construction projects will help expedite key local projects and spur additional economic development in our region,” Brewster said. “I will continue to help obtain state resources for local projects.”

The projects include:

  • $1 million to renovate and expand the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank building in Duquesne. Workers will build a new cold dock, improve refrigeration capability, and construct offices and meeting rooms;
  • $1 million to build a new addition and parking lot for the Bechtel Plant Machinery, Inc. expansion on Jamison Lane, Monroeville. The funds will be used to purchase additional land, construct a three-story building and interior design; and
  • $750,000 to reconstruct the RiverLift Industries barge dock wall in West Elizabeth Borough. Workers will replace the existing embedded barge dock structure with a new 500-foot steel sheet pile wall and tie-back system.

The funds were obtained from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), which is used for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects. Qualifying projects have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact, help create or maintain jobs and generate economic activity.
