The State of Pennsylvania has awarded a $245,762 grant to the Central Cambria Education Foundation.
The money will be used to build an all-inclusive playground on the Central Cambria School Campus. The grant will cover the cost to purchase and install the playground equipment.
State Representative Frank Burns is quoted saying “Like the organization, I believe that all children should be included on the playground and be able to play together. This worthwhile project is an effort to provide a safe place where children with disabilities can play.”
The grant is from the Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program, which is overseen by the Commonwealth Financing Authority. The program’s goal is to promote greenways, recreational space, open space, trails, parks and river conservation.
