Active Aging centers in Meadville and Cambridge Springs were among 60 senior centers in the state to receive Senior Community Center grants.
The grants will help senior centers fund projects based on their applications, such as updating and modernizing facilities, providing new health and entertainment programs, upgrading technology, and enhancing marketing opportunities.
Active Aging of Meadville will receive $7,260 for programs and services, and Active Aging of Cambridge Springs will get $5,000 for technology, the state announced Wednesday.
The total amount of grants announced totaled $2 million in funding appropriated by the General Assembly from the Pennsylvania Lottery.
“Senior community centers play an immense role for older Pennsylvanians by assisting them with aging in place,” Gov. Tom Wolf said. “The grants will empower these centers to make their desired changes to further benefit regular attendees while attracting a new generation of participants.”
