Three out of Three LSA Applications Funded




Late last summer, the Pike County Economic Development Authority’s Tammy Savarese assisted applicants looking to obtain LSA grants. LSA Funds are revenues that come from the Commonwealth’s share of legal wagering and games within the State of Pennsylvania. Three separate applications were submitted by the Pike County Economic Development Authority on behalf of three local not-for-profit organizations. In years past, the Pike County Economic Development Authority had previously been awarded LSA grants to assist in projects like the roof replacement of the American Legion Post 851 in Dingmans Ferry and 50% of the construction costs of the Pike County Public Library in Milford.

This year, the three final project applications included funding for the following projects:

• The Milford Community House for interior restoration.
• Funds for the Pocono Environmental Education Center to help construct a new ‘sustainable” building to accommodate more children.
• Funding for the American Legion Post 139 in Milford to repair their damaged parking lot.

The Pike County Commissioners and all elected officials as well as members of the Pennsylvania House and Senate all played an important role in the application process and aided in the successful results below. Commissioner Matt Osterberg said that “these funds play a vital role in supporting local projects that otherwise would likely go unfunded.” The table below shows the level of funding requested and the amount of the 2017 LSA funding awards:

Community House
Application Amount $452,407
Amount Granted $200,000

PEEC
Application Amount -$250,000
Amount Granted - $150,000

American Legion
Application Amount-$44,286
Amount Granted- $44,000




Each project will now need to comply with regulations and oversight by local and state officials. However, according to Tammy Savarese, “it has been a good year.”
