Titusville facility gets state funding

From staff reports

A Titusville facility is receiving $500,000 from a $2.8 million state revitalization fund, Gov. Tom Wolf said Friday.

Titusville Iron Works is one of six entities to receive the help as part of the Community Revitalization Fund Program.

The program seeks to expand or rehabilitate affordable housing coupled with retail/commercial space to promote community revitalization.

“The goal of the Community Revitalization Fund Program is to stimulate high-impact neighborhood revitalization projects around the state,” a press release said. “This round of funding prioritized applications from smaller cities and communities.”

The release said the projects that are receiving funds will create a total of 83 new or rehabilitated residential units and 28,000 square feet of commercial-retail space.
