Harrisburg – January 4, 2017 – Applications for grants available through Pennsylvania’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) are now being accepted through Feb. 3, state Senator Jay Costa announced. 

RACP is a commonwealth grant program administered by the Governor’s Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic and historical improvement projects.  

 “These grants are critically important to the future growth of our communities,” Costa said.  “When organizations receive RACP grants to assist with local projects and initiatives, it creates jobs, sparks economic development and provides new opportunities for businesses, families and the community at large.”

“I strongly encourage everyone in our business community to consider applying for a grant to support the work they’re doing.  When we invest in the people and organizations close to home, we all win.”

In an effort to streamline the application process, an online application is now available.  Organizations wishing to apply for grant funds should submit their application electronically at https://www.esa.dced.state.pa.us/login.aspx
