Sen. Brooks Secures Grant for Broadband Expansion in Mercer County

HARRISBURG (March 22, 2022) Mercer County will receive a $266,455 grant for high-speed broadband service, Sen. Michele Brooks announced today after a meeting of the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA).

“It is my hope that this funding will continue to expand connectivity, which is so critical to success in today’s high-tech world,” Brooks said.  “Reliable internet service is such an important tool, whether for commercial, residential, agricultural or educational uses, in your home, school, farm, or business, and I am committed to continuing to invest in broadband infrastructure to assist unserved and underserved areas of our community.” 

The Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages. The CFA holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
