Catawissa Borough Economic Development Strategy Plan

This report is the culmination of months of planning, analysis of economic trends, data gathering and interpretation, visioning, and prioritization. The process began in April of 2019, with the creation of the Catawissa Borough Stakeholder Advisory Committee lead by Penn Strategies. Their skill sets, varied expertise and institutional knowledge have resulted in this focused, thoughtful blueprint for growth in the Borough of Catawissa.

The goal of this plan is to provide a road map for the total redevelopment of Catawissa Borough. The goal of this plan is to outline specific steps that, if taken, will make Catawissa a better place to live, work, and raise a family. In order to design a plan for future growth for the Borough, it is important to consider the past.

Pre-Notification of Survey

Dear Catawissa Resident,


The Borough and Water Authority are always looking for grant programs to help fund infrastructure projects. One of these programs is the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). To determine if Catawissa is eligible for this grant, an income survey must be conducted.  Within the next few weeks, you may receive this survey in the mail from the Columbia County Redevelopment Authority (CCRA). Please complete and return the survey to the CCRA. All information provided is confidential.  Your participation is vital for this funding.


Thank you,

Catawissa Borough and Catawissa Water Authority
