State Grant Will Bring Jobs, Economic Opportunities to Somerset County

Corsa NAPP has been awarded a $3 million state Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grant according to Senator Pat Stefano (R-32), who said the funds will help to create 50 new jobs and allow the company to expand its operations.

“This funding is crucial to jobs, economic development and our coal industry,” Stefano said.  “I’m pleased that as a result of this grant, the company will be able to grow its business and create jobs for area residents.”

Stefano said the company produces metallurgical coal, which is sold to steel companies for their use in manufacturing.

“There is a demand for this kind of coal, and if we can use this funding to get mines operating again and expand coal processing plants, we can take advantage of a great opportunity,” Stefano said.
