HERMITAGE – Two area senior community centers will benefit from nearly $10,000 in funding from the state Department of Aging to help them continue operating during the pandemic, state Rep. Mark Longietti announced Thursday.

Longietti, D-7th, Hermitage, said funding of nearly $5,000 each to the Shenango Valley Senior Center in Hermitage and the Greenville Senior Community Center will provide critical relief to help allay the impact of the pandemic.

The grant is part of a package of $2 million in funding to the state’s 405 Agency on Aging-affiliated senior community centers.

The funding – appropriated by the General Assembly from the Pennsylvania Lottery – may be used for COVID-19 mitigation, capital improvements and renovations, programs and services, technology, nutrition services, marketing and outreach, and rent and utilities.
