HARRISBURG – Rep. Mike Cabell (R-Luzerne) announced the awarding of nearly $1.75 million in state funding for a variety of municipal projects and purchases in the 117th Legislative District. Cabell played a key role in securing the 14 Local Share Account (LSA) grants.

“Some of this funding will go toward projects with far-reaching benefits, such as much-needed improvement work at the Freeland Borough building,” said Cabell. “I was also pleased to advocate for money for continued improvements at the White Haven Area Community Library and Camp Kresge, two venues I’ve become quite familiar with during my time in office. Other purchases will help ensure public safety, and I always stand ready and willing to assist our great local officers.”

The grants were approved and awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, which was established as an independent agency that holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth. LSA grants are derived from gaming revenues.
