Robinson, Mihalek Announce $500,000 in RACP Funding for Bethel Park

(HARRISBURG) – Sen. Devlin Robinson (R-37) and Rep. Natalie Mihalek (R-40) today announced grant funding recently awarded to Bethel Park through Pennsylvania’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP).

The Municipality of Bethel Park will receive $500,000 for the installation of new recreation light poles at two existing turf lacrosse and soccer fields located at Village Green Park and Millennium Park.

“These parks have become fixtures in the local community and have helped make Bethel Park a great place to live, work and play,” Sen. Robinson said. “I’m pleased to see state investment in this project so that these facilities can be safely utilized into the evening hours and in the spring and fall months. I thank Rep. Mihalek and the officials at the Municipality of Bethel Park for working with me to help secure this funding.”

“I am thankful for the opportunity to work with Sen. Robinson to bring this project to fruition,” said Mihalek. “Bethel Park has already made several recent improvements to its parks. Adding lights to these fields is yet another means to make this area a great place to live and raise a family.”

RACP is a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects. RACP projects are state-funded and cannot obtain primary funding under other state programs.
