– Rep. Rob Mercuri (R-Allegheny) announced today that Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Wexford Hospital will receive $1 million in funding from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) to be used to add parking to accommodate the growth of the campus.
“As AHN Wexford continues to serve the health and wellness needs of our community, this funding will support resident parking accessibility and reduce congestion as the hospital continues to expand their capabilities to provide services to our region,” Mercuri said. “I am grateful to RACP for its commitment to improving the lives of residents in our district through effective allocation of resources to where they are most needed.”
Funding for the project was authorized by lawmakers in the Capital Budget Project Itemization Act.
RACP is a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects. These projects have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact and generate substantial increases or maintain current levels of employment, tax revenues or other measures of economic activity. RACP projects are funded by the state and cannot obtain primary funding under other state programs.
