Rep. Boback Announces State Funds for Lackawanna Trail School District Building Project

The Lackawanna Trail School District today was awarded $500,000 for a major building project through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), announced Rep. Karen Boback (R-Lackawanna/Luzerne/Wyoming) who played a key role in securing the state funding. 

“I am a strong supporter of this community improvement project and am pleased the governor approved it for funding,” said Boback. “The Lackawanna Trail School District has always been a hub of activity for the area, sponsoring various events to benefit students, as well as nonprofit organizations. This multi-purpose facility will enhance the district’s ability to continue that important community outreach and I look forward to its completion.”

Specifically, the RACP grant will go toward the construction of a free-standing, energy-efficient educational facility at the high school complex. It will consist of a technology center, physical education classrooms, exercise rooms and educational support rooms for the community that lacks adequate broadband and technology infrastructure. The building will use energy efficient lighting, HVAC and building envelope materials to satisfy green technology standards.

Funding for this RACP grant and others was authorized by lawmakers in the Capital Budget Project Itemization Act. RACP is a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic and historical improvement projects with a focus on job creation.
