New interactive map shows breakdown of ARP funds in Mercer County
A new interactive map has been released to show the breakdown of federal dollars coming to Pennsylvania from the American Rescue Plan.
The new tool gives users the opportunity to see the specific locations impacted by the money.
Mercer County received $10,373,870 in ARP funds which are dispersed across the area.
The majority of the funds - $8,010,283 - will be distributed to local municipalities in the county to replace lost revenue, help small businesses and families, and invest in infrastructure.
The city of Hermitaged will receive $1,529,587 in ARP funds as well.
There are two other smaller investments in Mercer County, including $675,000 to repair and stabilize the campground shoreline, rehabilitate interior piping and to install a greenhouse at Shenango River Lake.
The second is a $159,000 project to upgrade infrastructure at the Greenville Municipal Airport.
Lawrence County is also set to receive $8,613,397 with more than $6 million going to local municipalities. Another $2.1 million is being assigned to the City of New Castle.
$159,000 will be used to upgrade the New Castle Municipal Airport, similar to those being made at the Greenville airport.
