Pittsburgh, PA − April 20, 2018 − Senate Democratic Leader Jay Costa, Jr. today announced nearly $150,000 in state grants will go to senior community centers in his district.

“Senior centers play a critical role in our communities,” said Senator Costa. “Especially given Pennsylvania’s aging population, it is vitally important that the state invest in the resources and services that our older constituents need.”

Senior centers have a wide variety of offerings that may include: nutritious meal programs; educational opportunities; transportation services; financial and insurance counseling; exercise programs; and social and recreational activities.

The centers receiving funding in Senator Costa’s district are:

  • Vintage, Inc. – $82,000
  • Riverview Community Action Corporation – $60,000

There are over 500 senior community centers across the 67 counties of the commonwealth, and these grants are designed to help centers provide services that attract a new generation of participants.
