RIDGWAY – The North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission (North Central) reminds municipalities in the six-county region that technical assistance with grant applications for the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s (DCED) Multimodal Transportation Fund is available at no cost.

North Central provides free technical assistance for municipalities, councils of government, nonprofit businesses, economic development organizations, and public transportation agencies who are applying for DCED’s transportation initiative to better understand the guidelines, supplemental documentation requirements, long-range plan consistency, data, and proofreading before submitting the grant for funding consideration.

The Online Electronic Single Application for DCED’s transportation initiative can be found at https://rb.gy/i6foha. North Central will assist applicants in Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson, McKean, and Potter counties.

North Central asks that grant applications, cost estimates, and other supplemental documents be received no later than Friday, July 19. The sooner the information is received the quicker North Central staff can proofread and provide comments on the application if needed.

For more information or to enlist North Central’s assistance with the grant application package, contact Elise Grovanz at 814-773-3162, ext. 3016 or email egrovanz@ncentral.com. If a cost estimate is needed for the project application, please contact PennDOT’s Municipal Service Representative.
