The group will announce the grants in March. Payments will be disbursed upon the submission of copies of construction invoices.

Grant proposals must include:

• a detailed description of the project, with itemized materials, photos, specifications and layout;

• the project address and location;

• an itemized price quote;

• project revenue sources;

• an explanation of the need for the project and whom it will benefit;

• a project timeline; and

• the annual budget for the organization.

Applications should be submitted to Friends of PTARC, 2001 Municipal Court, Harrison City, 15636. Contact Cheryl Kemerer at 724-744-2171 ext. 205 or ckemerer@penntwp.org for more information.
