HARRISBURG – Sen. Frank Farry (R-6) today announced more than $3.5 million in grants is being awarded for local projects.
“I’m pleased to have helped secure this funding for important projects and upgrades for Bucks County,” Farry said. “The approved state grant funding will greatly benefit our communities and enhance our infrastructure reliability for years to come.”

The Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act of 2004 provides for the distribution of gaming revenue through the CFA and its LSA program.
