COMMUNITY FACILITIES, SITE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FUNDS AVAILABLE

 COMMUNITY FACILITIES, SITE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FUNDS AVAILABLE
 HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania communities and municipalities have until April 15 to apply for grants of up to $50,000 under the state's Community Facilities and Site Development programs, Acting Commerce Secretary Andrew T. Greenberg announced today.
 Municipalities meeting eligibility guidelines must submit letters of intent outlining their proposed projects by April 15 in order to be considered for funding during fiscal year 1992-93, Greenberg said.
 Maximum grant limits for both programs are generally $50,000 or 50 percent of the total project cost, whichever dollar amount is less. Certain communities and counties designated as distressed by the Commerce Department are eligible for increased levels of assistance. Additional information can be obtained by calling the Bureau of Grants at 717-787-7120.
 Funding decisions for both programs will be made during the month of July.
 Eligible applicants for the Community Facilities Program include cities, boroughs and townships with populations of fewer than 12,000 and county and municipal authorities serving these areas.
 Interested applicants should write to the Pennsylvania Department of Commerce, Bureau of Grants, 494 Forum Building, Harrisburg, Pa., 17120.
 Community Facilities and Site Development funds may be used for construction, alteration, expansion and improvement of water facilities, sanitary sewer lines (excluding sewage treatment facilities and storm sewers) and access roads. Site Development grants also may be used for stream channel realignment and acquiring land in impoverished urban areas.
 Site Development assistance grants are restricted to industrial development projects. They are available to communities of any size through local governments, municipal authorities, non-profit industrial development agencies and state agencies.
