TREDYFFRIN TWP, PA — The Tredyffrin Township Board of Supervisors, at their July 19th meeting, voted unanimously to approve allocation of their American Rescue Plan (ARP) Funding. The Township will receive a total of almost $3,100,000 in ARP funds, half of which was received in late June, and the balance of which will be received next year. The Township has until 2024 to spend the funds, as required under the program.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to make an immediate investment into the Township to address important funding needs – such as stormwater infrastructure, supporting our Fire Companies – Berwyn, Paoli, and Radnor – as well making much needed park improvements,” stated Supervisor Matt Holt after the meeting.
The Township plans to provide $750,000 directly to the fire companies that serve the Township with their entire share to be paid within the next few months. These funds will go to support the fire companies’ capital equipment and infrastructure needs.
Over $1,750,000 will be allocated to support stormwater and MS4 related projects. Tredyffrin, like many communities in Southeastern PA, has been working to find alternative financial support to address flooding and stormwater throughout the Township and this funding provides the Township a great opportunity to address some of the issues we are facing.
“Tredyffrin Township is committed to long-term funding for stormwater management. We have been working with the Citizens Stormwater Task Force over the last year to identify projects and examine how we might best fund stormwater management costs in the future. This ARP money could not have come at a better time. We now have more resources available to help us tackle our important stormwater projects,” Board Chair Murph Wysocki pointed out.
In addition, $475,000 will be directed to support park upgrades at Mazie B. Hall, Strafford, and Teegarden Parks.
“Having these monies available to go to our Parks will allow us to make much needed improvements for our residents and park users. This will include equipment upgrades, such as swings and playsets, as well as facility upgrades, such as a comfort station and parking improvements,” according to Supervisor Dr. Julie Gosse.
