The Bedford County Development Association has been awarded a $500,000 state grant to expand the Business Park in Bedford Township and provide space for new and expanding companies, according to Senator Wayne Langerholc, Jr. (R-35).
Langerholc said the grant will be used to support the construction of a 12,000-square-foot building, which will provide space for future tenants in the Hess Business Center. Currently, the 39,000 square-foot Hess Business Center is near capacity. The project is anticipated to create jobs by providing space for small businesses to grow and develop.
“Securing $500,000 to aid in new construction of a 12,000 sq. foot building will be the catalyst that will drive economic growth, attract new businesses and provide family sustaining jobs for our people and our region,” said Senator Wayne Langerholc. “I am pleased to announce this award that was the collaboration of hard work by many individuals.”
Funding was provided by the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program which supports critical expansion projects, some of which will provide opportunities for additional economic development.
