PHILADELPHIA – December 9, 2020 – State Senator Vincent Hughes (D-Philadelphia/Montgomery) announced that the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) had awarded $10,617,825 to organizations in Philadelphia and Montgomery County.

The grants were administered by PCCD through various programs including coronavirus relief, violence prevention initiatives and other federal programs. PCCD awards grants throughout the year to public safety and justice programs across the commonwealth, which help ensure our communities remain safe and secure.

“I am always grateful for these types of grants going into Philadelphia and Montgomery counties, as well as across Pennsylvania,” Sen. Hughes said. “This round especially is focused on undoing the damage of trauma and it’s lingering effects, which we must continue to address at a state level.

I am hopeful we can continue to build on these efforts and create a better Pennsylvania.”
