(Reading, PA) -- The Opportunity House in Reading is going to be able to expand after receiving some help from the state. The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development awarded the Opportunity House a one-hundred-thousand-dollar grant yesterday. Officials say the money is going to be used to convert a blighted property into a living space for low-income people in the county. Berks County is going to be matching the state's funding in the future.
