Maloney Efforts to Boost Funding for Boyertown Seniors Pays Off
HARRISBURG – State Rep. David Maloney (R-Berks) today announced that grant funding in the amount of $84,723 has been awarded to Boyertown Area Multi-Service Center at Spring Street.

“Having made multiple visits to Boyertown Multi-Service Center and listening to their needs and concerns, I have strongly advocated for this funding for quite some time now,” Maloney said. “As these funds are from the 2013-14 budget cycle, they are certainly welcome and needed.”

The grant award can be used to advance senior community center projects to modernize facilities, encourage technology improvements, expand innovative programming, and help to meet the needs of their participants.

“My first concern was ensuring that seniors in Berks County and elsewhere in Pennsylvania did not have to endure a reduction in services when a $50,000 gap in funding was brought to my attention, and so I met with House Appropriations Chairman Bill Adolph and Secretary of Aging Brian Duke in person to ensure that the 2013-14 state budget contains revenues from the additional $50 million in Pennsylvania Lottery funds and rate schedule changes at the Department of Public Welfare to restore that $50,000,” Maloney said.
