HARRISBURG – State Rep. Robert Leadbeter (R-Columbia) today announced $33,000 in state funding has been awarded to the Community Giving Foundation in Columbia County through the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA).

The award was considered at today’s CFA Board meeting and approved through the PA Arts and Culture Recovery Program (PACR).

“Columbia County displays strong conservative values in multiple ways throughout our rural communities,” said Leadbeter. “I’m glad to see this funding coming back to the 109th district, so we can properly promote and enhance the innovation, caring spirit, and creativity of our residents.”

The grant is funded from multiple sources with the largest being federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) money appropriated for recreation and conservation as part of previous Pennsylvania state budgets.
