SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Congressman Richard Neal is set to announce $36.6 million in federal funding for the PVTA Friday.
The money is through the CARES Act, which was an emergency aid bill passed in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Congressman Neal will talk about the funding with PVTA Administrator Sandra Sheehan during an event at Union Station at 12:00 p.m.
Since pandemic’s effects began being felt in western Massachusetts, the PVTA has been providing service for essential trips only.
