Press Release- Township Awarded RACP Grant

The Lower Gwynedd Township Board of Supervisors (BOS) is pleased to announce that the Township has been awarded $1.325M from the Pennsylvania Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), which is a grant program administered by the Office of the Budget, for a future Public Works Building. The BOS would like to thank Senator Collett and Representative Hanbidge for their advocacy on behalf of the township.

Senator Maria Collett and Representative Liz Hanbidge were instrumental in securing this funding for Lower Gwynedd Township. “I’m thrilled to announce state funding for capital projects supporting our public works employees, expanding educational opportunities, and so much more,” said Senator Collett. “Each of these projects responds to a big need and will make our district an even safer and more attractive place to live, work, and play.” Representative Hanbidge added that “these are transformative investments in education, public safety, and community”. Danielle Duckett, Chair of the Lower Gwynedd Board of Supervisors, said: “We are so honored to receive this much needed grant funding for Lower Gwynedd. With vehicles and materials currently scattered throughout the Township, our Public Works Department is in dire need of a single facility to meet our current demands and future growth. One of my priorities as Chair is to make sure we appropriately plan for our Township’s future. This award enables us to plan for the construction of a Public Works facility that will finally address the previously overlooked needs of this essential Township Department.”

While this project is still in its infancy, the BOS is looking to construct a new facility that will include accommodations necessary for the public works operations and staff. The BOS plans to allocate funding in the 2023 Township budget to perform an architectural and engineering analysis of a public works building to determine the necessary size, design, site improvements, and identify a suitable location for the future building.
