Pennsylvania state senator, Gene Yaw, announced yesterday that several local grant and loan requests have been approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA), including a liquefied natural gas (LNG) production plant in Bradford County.
As part of funding initiatives, US$ 5.327 million in grants, and a US$ 2.3 million loan, has been approved for projects in Bradford, Lycoming and Union Counties.
