More water assistance funding coming to Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania is expected to receive additional financial support from the federal government in the form of increased funding for water assistance programs.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced that it will be providing an unprecedented level of financial assistance to the Keystone State in order to help improve and protect its water infrastructure. Specifically, the USDA will be allocating $30 million in funding to the state in order to help fund projects that will improve the quality, availability, and sustainability of its water supply.

The money will be used to upgrade existing water systems, protect and restore water sources, and develop innovative technologies that can help reduce water demand and conserve water. It will also be used to assist in the implementation of new regulations designed to improve water quality.

In a statement, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf said that the additional funds would be a great asset to the state as it works to improve its water infrastructure.

“This additional funding is vital to Pennsylvania’s efforts to modernize our water infrastructure, protect our water sources, and ensure that our water is safe and accessible for all,” said Wolf.

The USDA’s announcement is the latest in a series of initiatives aimed at helping the state improve its water infrastructure. Earlier this year, the state passed legislation that will provide $4 billion in funding for water infrastructure projects over the next four years.

The combination of the USDA’s additional funding and the state’s own initiatives will help ensure that Pennsylvania’s water sources remain clean, safe, and accessible for years to come.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has declared its intention to provide Pennsylvania with an unprecedented level of financial assistance for water assistance programs, allotting $30 million for projects to upgrade existing water systems, protect and restore water sources, and develop innovative technologies to reduce water demand and conserve water. Governor Tom Wolf has noted the importance of the addition funds in modernizing the state’s water infrastructure and ensuring the safety and accessibility of its water supply. The USDA’s allocation and the state’s own investment of $4 billion over four years demonstrate the commitment of both entities to protect and sustain the Keystone State’s water resources.
