Congresswoman Madeleine Dean, a Glenside native and Abington High School graduate, announced that a portion of $11,936,080 in Community Project Funding will be allocated to Abington, Cheltenham, and Upper Moreland townships.

Abington’s police force will receive $93,000 for its Technology Improvement Plan Project, Cheltenham Township will receive $3,828,500 for the La Mott Community Center Restoration Rehabilitation Project, the North Hills Community Association will receive $147,488 for the Limekiln Pike & Mount Carmel Avenue Lighting Renewal Project, and Upper Moreland Township will receive $850,000 for the Willow Grove Interchange Improvement Project.

They are deeply deserving of this federal funding, and I look forward to our continued partnerships.”
