Fidelity Bank Receives Additional State Grant for Planned Downtown Scranton HQ
Scranton, PA - December 2, 2021 -As part of the ongoing renaissance of downtown Scranton, Fidelity Bank will be receiving an additional $2 million through the Pennsylvania's Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, or RACP. This grant is in support of Fidelity Bank's plans to establish a new headquarters in the heart of the City of Scranton.
Fidelity Bank is planning a move of its corporate headquarters into the downtown, creating an economic multiplier effect, with 175 well-paying jobs to start, and room for future expansion. By moving bankers into the city center, businesses including restaurants, dry-cleaners, and other services will benefit from an additional workforce.
Last year, it was announced that Fidelity Bank would be receiving funds for the project. This news brings the total funds for the project to $4 million.
"Scranton is the largest city in our area, and its economic revival is paramount to the success of many small businesses, not just within the city, but throughout Lackawanna County and all of Northeastern Pennsylvania. As a corporate leader, it is incumbent upon us to make economic improvements that will better the lives of those within the communities we serve," said Fidelity Bank President & CEO, Daniel J. Santaniello.
