State Rep. Tina Davis announced more than $1.1 million in tax credits have been approved to help improve the lives of residents in Bucks County.
“These organizations go out of their way to help the people in our neighborhoods, including providing services during and in the aftermath of the pandemic, as well as fighting issues such as blight,” Davis said.
The investments are funded through the Neighborhood Assistance Program to support nonprofits, resident projects and businesses, including placing a priority on projects that address issues related to the pandemic.
“It’s rewarding to see investments going to worthy organizations, and I hope it serves as a reminder about all the positive work and services being accomplished and offered across our region,” Davis said.
