Bradford Senior Center Earns Grant

Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) today announced the Greater Bradford Senior Activity Center was awarded a $28,375 grant through the state Department of Aging’s Senior Community Center Grants Program.

“The Bradford Senior Center provides a great service to the senior citizens in our community by offering meals, activities and the opportunity to socialize with their peers,” Causer said. “I was pleased to support the center’s grant request and encourage more area seniors to take advantage of this service.”

The grant funds will be used for a new furnace and air conditioning system, as well as new carpeting.

In Elk County, the Jones Township Senior Center will receive $44,000 for capital improvements and the Bennetts Valley Senior Center will receive $3,700 for computer upgrades and a sound system.

Grants totaling $2 million were awarded to 67 senior centers statewide. The grants, which are supported by state lottery funds, will be used to modernize, encourage technology improvements, expand innovative programming and better meet the needs of current and future participants.
