(Braddock, PA) — Today, U.S. Congresswoman Summer Lee (D-PA-12) joined Senators Bob Casey (D-PA), John Fetterman (D-PA), and Congressman Chris Deluzio (PA-17) in announcing $10 million for from the Appalachian Regional Commission to Pittsburgh-based non-profit Catalyst Connection to help small manufacturers build the green technologies they need.

“This critical $10 million investment will be crucial in sustaining and creating good, green energy jobs in Western Pennsylvania and at the same time help us transition towards clean energy and clean air for all” said Rep. Lee. This funding will help boost Pittsburgh’s competitiveness in building and producing the economy of the future.

“The infrastructure law is helping America take control of its future and become the manufacturing powerhouse we know we can be,” Senator Bob Casey said. “This funding will help Catalyst Connection expand their work to help more small manufacturers build the technologies and economy of tomorrow. Catalyst embodies the ingenuity and fighting spirit of Southwestern Pennsylvania and I’m proud to support their work.” 

“I’m proud to join my colleagues in announcing this important funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for development right here in western Pennsylvania,” Senator John Fetterman said.“This investment will help create jobs in our region, and it’s exactly the kind of funding we need to expand American manufacturing, innovation, and production.”

“I believe in my bones that Western Pennsylvania and America will be better off when we make more here at home—and transformational federal investments like President Biden’s Infrastructure Law are helping us get it done,” said Rep. Chris Deluzio. “With grants like the $10 million announced today for Catalyst Connection, we can bolster American competitiveness in the clean energy and green technology industries, driven by strong growth by small manufacturers. Let’s grow and create solid jobs, secure our energy future, and show the world that American manufacturing is second to none.”
