HARRISBURG – Rep. Barb Gleim (R-Cumberland) today announced more than $2.7 million in state grants have been awarded for sewer and water infrastructure, and arts and culture projects in the 199th Legislative District.

“This grant funding is essential for the health and growth of our communities,” said Gleim. “Ensuring residents have safe and reliable water and sewer services, as well as access to enriching cultural programs, are important components to every community, which is why I advocated for this funding.”

• South Middleton Township Municipal Authority - $1.75 million for the Well No. 1 Water Tank construction project located in South Middleton Township, Cumberland County.
