PITTSBURGH – May 3, 2019 – Today, Senate Democratic Leader Jay Costa, Jr. announced grant awards to three senior centers in the 43rd Senatorial District.

“Pennsylvania has an aging population, and it’s important that we invest in our seniors,” said Senator Costa. “These folks have invested in our communities for their entire lives and now it’s our responsibility to make sure that they’re able to grow old in centers that offer top notch care and programming.”

The centers receiving today’s awards are:

  • Homewood Healthy Active Living Center, $38,200
