 The latest news from the State Capitol

 
Have You Applied Yet?

Monday, Dec. 31, is the deadline for older adults and residents with disabilities to apply for rebates on rent and property taxes paid in 2017.

At last count, more than 425,000 Pennsylvanians had applied to the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program through the Department of Revenue.

The income limit is $35,000 a year for homeowners and $15,000 annually for renters, and half of Social Security income is excluded. The maximum standard rebate is $650.

Eligibility information and forms are available on my website at RepHeffley.com or by contacting one of my district offices.
 
 
Jim Thorpe Park Project Awarded State Grant

State funding was recently awarded to Jim Thorpe Borough for developing an improvement plan for its municipal park. The grant was made available through a program administered by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

The borough will use the $25,000 grant toward the preparation of a master site development plan for Memorial Park.

The park is an important community asset, but it is in need of repairs and upgrading. Before the borough begins any work on the facility, it has to determine what needs to be done, which will be determined by the master site plan.
 
 
Revitalizing Distressed Neighborhoods

A new state law expands a program that encourages revitalization of distressed neighborhoods. Created in 1967, the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) provides tax credits to businesses that invest in affordable housing programs, community services, crime prevention, education, job training or neighborhood assistance.

Act 100 of 2018 increases the NAP’s funding from $18 million to $36 million and marks the first time allocated funding for the program has been increased since its inception. A recent report found that in 2015-16 NAP’s $17.9 million in tax credits resulted in a total economic impact of $138.1 million.

This proven program has helped bring new businesses, needed services and additional revenue to struggling towns and cities. The end result is more jobs, safer streets and a better quality of life for some of Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable families.
