On Wednesday, State Rep. Ryan Bizzarro, D-Erie, announced he successfully secured a $139,533 grant for the Millcreek Education Foundation.

These competitive grant dollars go to regions only when elected officials advocate for them. In this instance, Bizzarro was successful in his bid for the money to come to Erie.

“I will always fight for every dollar that could possibly come from Harrisburg to our region,” Bizzarro said. “Grant money like this is important because it helps communities like Millcreek thrive.”

The money will be used for the purchase and installation of playground equipment associated with the Community Access Recreational and Environmental Space Project in Millcreek Township.
