Funding for renovations is supported in part by the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), a grant program administered by the Pennsylvania Office of the Budget, and other sources including private foundations and individuals.

The Brandywine was the recipient of $2,000,000 in Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) funding for this project and other upcoming facility upgrades. Support from RACP funds will assist the Brandywine in the creation of quality, family-sustaining jobs for Pennsylvanians, and will aid in providing much needed economic stimulus to the state’s economy.
