Beaver County Elm Street Initiative
A General Overview


After several years of planning workshops and countless volunteer hours, nine of our Beaver County Rivertowns were awarded limited “Elm Street Program” support by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).  This was made possible through the determined efforts of the Beaver County Community Development Program’s Downtown Revitalization Program.  The 9 participating Beaver County communities are: Aliquippa, Ambridge, Beaver, Bridgewater, Freedom, Midland, Monaca, New Brighton and Rochester.

The Elm Street Program, an initiative of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) awards funding for planning, technical assistance, and physical improvements to residential and mixed-use neighborhoods in close proximity to traditional downtown central business districts.

The current Elm Street grant was awarded by DCED to provide the selected Beaver County municipalities with professional assistance to make funding applications for physical improvement projects in their designated “Elm Street” neighborhoods.

Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation (PHLF), in cooperation with Town Center Associates (TCA), will provide professional support for the initial phase of this initiative.  In August 2007, PHLF and TCA presented an orientation workshop for steering committee members and borough managers to inform the group on how the grant funding is to be utilized, and to outline the type of projects that have a better chance to be funded by the State.  PHLF will offer assistance in submitting applications to the State for grant consideration.

Each of the nine communities has been working closely with Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation (PHLF) to identify a worthwhile project within the Elm Street designated area. This spring, PHLF will make application to DCED on behalf of each community.
