The grants may be used for sustainable, port-related economic development projects. Projects may be educational, recreational, environmental or touristic in nature or support some other economic development activities related to the rivers or streams of the 12-county Port of Pittsburgh district. The 12-counties in the PPC district are: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Blair, Butler, Clarion, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Washington and Westmoreland.
