“NEPA is honored to work with the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, NEPA Moves and COLTS to provide funding to support transit to work programming that seeks to eliminate transportation barriers. Through the creativity of our multi-partner team, NEPA provided 4 grants, totaling $16,250, to aid the NEPA MOVES initiative,” according to Jeffrey Box, President & CEO of NEPA Alliance. Funding was provided by the PA Department of Community & Economic Development’s ENGAGE! Program which is the Commonwealth’s Business Retention & Expansion Program.
On November 17th, NEPA, in partnership with the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, presented a check to NEPA Moves and COLTS for the continuation of bus service to the Jessup Industrial Park.
