HARRISBURG — A state grant will support the redevelopment of the Washington Trust Company Building in the City of Washington, according to Senator Camera Bartolotta (R-46).
The $196,420 grant, awarded through the Department of Community and Economic Development’s Keystone Communities program, will support the conversion of the building into a mixed-use structure featuring commercial offices, retail, and 24 affordable housing units.
“This grant is great news for Washington since it supports new business opportunities and housing while preserving one of the region’s landmark properties,” Bartolotta said. “This project is another positive step in the continuing efforts to breathe new life into the City of Washington, while at the same time honoring the history and the character of the community.”
The Keystone Communities program was created to encourage partnerships between the public and private sectors in the community, support local initiatives that grow and stabilize neighborhoods and communities, and enhance the overall quality of life for residents.
Forty-three projects across the state received a total of approximately $5.5 million in the current round of funding.
