New interactive tool gives Pennsylvanians a county-by-county breakdown of federal dollars coming to the Commonwealth
Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is launching a new interactive map highlighting federal investments that are being delivered to Pennsylvania. Since the start of the Biden Administration, billions of dollars have come—and are continuing to flow—into Pennsylvania to support families, schools, small businesses, health centers, local government and more. Additionally, the Commonwealth has already started to see the first of what will be a wave of unprecedented investments to rebuild crumbling infrastructure and protect the environment and natural resources following the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This map will help Pennsylvanians learn about improvements coming to their communities.
“Over the past year, Democrats have delivered for communities across the Nation. In addition to getting shots in arms and sending direct payments to families, the American Rescue Plan helped thousands of local communities and governments stay afloat—keeping teachers and first responders employed during the toughest times of the pandemic. Now, through the infrastructure law and directed spending for community projects, rural and urban communities across Pennsylvania are seeing investments in critical infrastructure projects, economic development and community revitalization and so much more. This interactive map will make it easy for Pennsylvanians from Erie to Philadelphia to learn about funding for local projects in their area and I encourage every Pennsylvanian to visit it and see what’s coming to their community,” said Senator Casey.
As funding makes its way to the Commonwealth, constituents can use this new, interactive tool to discover how much money Pennsylvania will receive for various projects such as infrastructure maintenance and repair, workforce development and job training and support for small businesses. So far, the map includes highlights from the American Rescue Plan, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and designated community project funding in the FY22 spending bill. The map will be updated regularly as new investments are made in Pennsylvania.
