PA Lottery Proceeds Top $1 Billion to Benefit Senior Citizens
8/2/2014
QUESTION: Can you tell me how much the Pennsylvania Lottery provides for programs and services in Crawford County?

ANSWER: The Pennsylvania Lottery recently reported record sales of $3.8 billion in the 2013-14 fiscal year, a 2.7 percent increase over last year.

More than $1 billion in net revenue was dedicated to programs benefitting older Pennsylvanians, bringing the total investment in those programs to $24.7 billion.

The Pennsylvania Lottery is the only lottery in the nation that exclusively targets all of its proceeds to programs for older residents.

While benefits for each county are being calculated for this year, the most recent statistics for the 2012-13 fiscal year show that Crawford County benefited from nearly $10 million.

Lottery proceeds helped to provide more than $2.5 million in relief for taxpayers through the Property Tax and Rent Rebate program.

Active Aging Inc. received nearly $2.3 million to provide programs, services and care for Crawford County senior citizens. PACE and PACENET provided more than $1.6 million in assistance to help people pay for prescriptions in Crawford County. Residents of Crawford County benefitted from nearly $500,000 in funding to pay for shared and free ride programs.

More than $2.8 million in funding was provided to pay for long-term living services for residents of Crawford County.

These programs and services benefit senior citizens and local families in Crawford County without placing additional pressure on taxpayers to support the initiatives.
