GPNP Members Receive RACP Awards

Pennsylvania announced the recipients of its Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grants, which had been delayed for 18 months. According to the state, "The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program is a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects."

GPNP members receiving RCAP funds include: Blind and Vision Rehabilitation Services, Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania, The Midwife Center, Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, Presbyterian Senior Care, Riverview Children's Center, the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children, and the Women's Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh. The amount received by these groups totals $9,500,000.

GPNP Executive Director told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, “This is a real sigh of relief for a lot of nonprofits because their capital projects have been held up, their financing has been held up … This is going to get the ball rolling.”
