Harrisburg – October 28, 2016 – A $1 million state grant will help with the cost of a 23,000-square-foot addition to Sullivan Hall at Saint Francis University, according to state Sen. John N. Wozniak (D-Cambria/Bedford/Clearfield).
The grant funding will be used to accommodate the School of Health Sciences at the university’s campus in Loretto.
The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant (RACP) will aid in the construction of the Rural Health and Wellness Science Complex. RACP’s can be used to for acquisition and construction of economic development projects.
Wozniak issued the following comments about the release of the state funding for the project:
“Our region needs to have access to state resources to fund important projects like the Rural Health and Wellness Science Complex. These state dollars will be put to good use in helping to support an education initiative that will serve this region and generations of students for years to come.
“Creating access to education is one way that we can build up our area and prepare students to tackle the challenges ahead. The state funding for the addition to Sullivan Hall is an excellent investment. Saint Francis has been a leader in developing education programs that meet the needs of our region and I am pleased state funds were approved for this project.”
