Sen. Steven Santarsiero and State Rep. Perry Warren, both D-Bucks, announced last month that the state Department of Community and Economic Development is awarding a $40,000 grant to Newtown.
The funds are being provided through the department’s Early Intervention Program, Perry said.
Grants from this program are designed to assist municipalities in creating short- and long-term financial plans to help them meet their goals.
“As a former township supervisor, I understand the importance of developing a sound financial strategy,” Steven said. “With this grant, Newtown Township will be able to provide residents with even greater services.”
Perry added that this grant will provide Newtown with a financial plan for the next five years.
“This infusion of state money will not only help the community grow, but it promises Newtown a prosperous future,” Perry said.
