Re: Request for County Sponsorship of Local Share Municipal Grant Application
Dear Ms. Echevarria:
On behalf of The Valley Lighthouse, I am writing to request that the Dauphin County Board of Commissioners sponsor the Local Share Municipal Grant Application that we intend to submit for the 2023-2024 grant cycle. As you will see from the enclosed (RESOLUTION OR LETTER], Lykens Borough has agreed to be a co-applicant on our application.
As such, we are seeking County sponsorship based on our co-applicant’s status as a non-contiguous municipality located within Dauphin County.
The Valley Lighthouse plays an important role within Northern Dauphin County and the Lykens Valley by offering life skills and personal improvement classes, free clothing, food, and household items, and help to those in need, the homeless and returning citizens.
To further our mission, we intend to apply for local share funding to cover renovations including new ballroom floor covering and parking lot resurfacing.
This project is important to our community and will benefit Lykens Borough and the County by making the building and parking more accessible, we intend to apply for a grant of up to $75,000.00
Thank you for your consideration of our request. Please advise if additional information is required to support the sponsorship of our Local Share Municipal Grant Application.
