New Pipeline Investment Program (PIPE) now available from PA DCED

The Department of Community and Economic Development is offering grant opportunities through the Pipeline Investment Program (PIPE). 

PIPE provides grants to construct the last few miles of natural gas distribution lines to business parks, existing manufacturing, and industrial enterprises. Projects supported by PIPE grants serve to connect businesses, industrial sites, municipalities, and residents to natural gas to ensure they benefit from having access to Pennsylvania’s abundant, low-cost energy source.

Uses
PIPE grants may be used to cover acquisition, construction, and site preparation costs associated with extending natural gas pipelines to serve eligible applicants.

Eligible Applicants
While residents cannot apply directly for PIPE grants, projects that include residential areas as a beneficiary, receive increased priority.

The following organizations may submit applications:
Economic Development Organizations
Businesses
Municipalities
Hospitals
School Districts
