“Equally essential to investing in the region’s energy infrastructure is investing in the women, men and local organizations whose services are often taken for granted,” said Peter Terranova, chair of the PennEast board of managers. “After two years of Project planning and stakeholder meetings, we have had the privilege to get to know communities along the PennEast route, and we’re pleased to continue to offer our support to so many important groups through our Community Connector Grant Program.
“PennEast’s Community Connector Grant Program, alongside its volunteer efforts and sponsorships, are examples of our dedication to supporting local communities within and surrounding the proposed Pipeline’s route. As the Project advances to provide a more secure energy future for the region, PennEast will continue to build and strengthen local relationships,” said Terranova.
Community groups along the proposed PennEast Pipeline are eligible. In Pennsylvania, the route runs through the counties of Bucks, Carbon, Luzerne and Northampton.For more information on the application process, visit the PennEast Pipeline Community Connector Grant Program webpage.
