Gebhard and Jozwiak Announce Nearly $167,000 in Gaming Revenue to Benefit Berks County Projects

BERKS – Sen. Chris Gebhard (R-48) and Rep. Barry Jozwiak (R-5) announced nearly $167,000 in Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) funding is being awarded for projects in Berks County.

“It is great to see that these projects will receive funding from Berks County’s share of profits made at the Hollywood Morgantown Casino,” Gebhard said.

“This gaming revenue will stay within the local community and help our municipalities in the district by offsetting some of the burden on taxpayers by paying for infrastructure improvements, public safety and recreational opportunities.” Jozwiak said.

The following projects were funded through the CFA’s Local Share Account (LSA) program, which uses gaming revenue to support projects in the public interest across the commonwealth:

  • Marion Township received $69,570 for the design and engineering of low-pressure wastewater treatment system improvements.
  • Penn Township received $48,658 to purchase a skid loader for paving, salt laying and snow removal.
  • Wernersville Borough received $48,652 for the installation of a security system at the borough office and Greth Memorial Park.

The CFA was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development to administer the commonwealth’s economic stimulus packages. The Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act of 2004 provides for the distribution of gaming revenue through the CFA and its LSA program.
