Section 5: Economic Development (PDF, 1.35 MB)

Funding for economic development projects, unlike that for transportation infrastructure, comes from somewhat less predictable sources. Traditionally, more often than not, it has been the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with its wide array of programs that provides the public support to an identified project.  Currently in Pennsylvania, there are approximately 105 state and federal programs available that can be matched to an economic development project; 91 of these programs are designated for business development and 14 programs are closely related to site revitalization and site development. Specific funding programs are always subject to change. Thus, implementation of the Plan focuses on consistency of projects as they are developed with the policies established in the Plan.
