Phoenixville is among six Chester County municipalities recently approved for a Community Revitalization Fund grant.

“Over the years, CRP grants have helped to improve communities across Chester County, focusing on urban areas,” said Commissioners’ Chair Ryan Costello. “In addition to improving the public health and safety of our community, these funds have encouraged more commercial and residential growth, and have spurred significant increases in taxable assessments in the urban centers.” 

Phoenixville will receive about $400,000 in CRP funds for water treatment plant flood wall improvements, the county said.

All told, the Chester County Commissioners approved some $2.9 million in Community Revitalization Fund grants for Phoenixivlle; Avondale; Coatesville; Honey Brook; Kennett Square; and South Coatesville.

“These projects support the goals of our strategic plan and are in line with Landscapes2, the County’s land use plan that bridges growth with preservation,” said Commissioner Kathi Cozzone. “CRP grants have contributed greatly to the success of community revitalization in Chester County, helping to focus economic development along our main streets. This year’s list of grants is no exception.” 

Since the program began in 2002, Chester County has awarded some $54.4 million in Community Revitalization Fund grants.
