Northeast Philly’s Center for Autism Awarded $1 Million Grant For Expansion
The Center for Autism in Philadelphia has two facilities, one of which has just received a $1 million grant courtesy of the state’s Economic Initiative Grant Program. John George at the Business Journal reports the money will go to expanding the center’s satellite facility in Northeast Philadelphia:
Awarded through the state’s Economic Initiative Grant Program, the money will be used to renovate space at center’s Grant Avenue location, which will allow the facility to provide 350 more evaluations each year and serve 270 more individuals and families through its various treatment programs.
According to a post on the Center for Autism’s Facebook page, Governor Tom Corbett paid the center a visit to accept a certificate of appreciation this past Monday. The governor gave gifts to the children and was then given a tour of the building and shown renderings of the planned expansion.
