$6.3 million in gaming grants awarded by Dauphin County Commissioners
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — The Dauphin County Commissioners awarded funding for more than 80 projects that help communities improve their residents’ quality of life without using local property tax dollars.
Funding for the $6.3 million in projects comes from the county’s share of gaming revenue generated from Hollywood Casino at Penn National in East Hanover Township.
“These projects have a direct, positive impact on our communities, from helping veterans find affordable housing and access to medical care to new radios for police and other equipment for first responders,’’ said board Chairman Jeff Haste in a news release. “Without these grants, townships would either have to delay work or raise local taxes.’’
