DOYLESTOWN TOWNSHIP, PA – Doylestown Township has received $500,000 in additional federal grant funding for the Doylestown Township Community Recreation Center. The award was announced by State Senator Steve Santarsiero.

“I would like to thank Governor Wolf for supporting my request for additional RACP funding for the Doylestown Township Community Recreation Center project,” said Senator Santarsiero. “The community center will be a multipurpose indoor and outdoor facility for residents and
Community groups to meet and stay active. Recreation centers are a key component of a strong, healthy, and connected community, which is why I am excited to support continued funding of this project.”

In June 2022, Senator Santarsiero announced $1 million for the first phase of the project to build a multi-purpose public recreation center on the city’s campus in the township of Doylestown. The additional $500,000 in funds will be used to remove obsolete outdoor activity courts and build new, contemporary athletic courts on the site. Funds will also go towards building indoor classrooms in the community center building.

“Doylestown Township is thrilled to learn of this additional RACP grant funding for our Park/Recreation Community Center project,” said Doylestown Township Manager Stephanie Mason. “We are grateful and appreciate Senator Santarsiero’s efforts in championing our project. We look forward to the project starting in 2023 and opening the doors to
Park/recreation community center in 2024.”

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. RACP projects have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact and generate
significant increases or maintenance of current levels of employment, tax revenue, or other measures of economic activity. RACP projects are government funded projects that cannot receive primary funding under other government programs.
