In order to meet an anticipated cash match level for federal grant dollars for the rural planning organization (RPO) at the North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission (NCPRPDC), officials voted Wednesday morning to increase the per capita rate for the six counties to 16.3 percent for 2013.
Currently set at 14 percent and based on population, executive director Eric Bridges informed the board Wednesday morning that available funds for transportation projects will increase in the coming years. With the increase, however, comes added monetary expenses from the counties as well.
