HARRISBURG – Transitional Paths to Independent Living (TRIPL) was awarded a $1.5 million state grant to continue its efforts to assist local residents living with disabilities, according to Senator Camera Bartolotta (R-46).
TRIPL was awarded the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant for Phase II of its YWCA Rehabilitation Project in Washington, according to Bartolotta, who strongly advocated for the project.
The funds will help the organization continue its redevelopment of the former YWCA building. Planned work includes adding a second elevator, widening doorways, installing specialized carpeting and flooring for wheelchairs, and adaptive furniture and equipment.
“TRIPL’s mission is to help people with disabilities live the life they choose in a place they choose,” said Bartolotta. “This grant will allow TRIPL to continue the necessary modifications to the building to create a vibrant, ADA-compliant facility that meets the needs of the people they serve.”
The project also includes restoration of the existing auditorium to provide for organizational and community events.
“This project not only furthers TRIPL’s ability to serve local people with disabilities, it contributes to the ongoing redevelopment of downtown Washington and the surrounding community,” Bartolotta said.
