More than 300 groups from across the state are lining up to get a piece of the $125 million available for Pennsylvania redevelopment projects.
Those requesting funding include the Luzerne County Convention Center Authority, which wants to upgrade Mohegan Sun Arena.
The competition is stiff in this recently streamlined state program — called the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program — with funding requests totaling 10 times the available grant money.
Gov. Tom Wolf will decide which projects receive grants in the fall.
