CAR SEAT PROGRAM
Central Pennsylvania Community Action coordinated a Car Seat Loaner Program for individuals who are not able to afford to buy their infants or toddlers the proper car seats to transport their children in vehicles. Car seats can be very expensive and must meet strict safety guidelines, so this program gives people peace of mind by providing a safe car seat for their child. This program partners with PennDOT and PA Traffic Injury Prevention Project who provides the proper car seats that are loaned out to individuals who meet the income guidelines. Income guidelines are set at 150% poverty level or below. Once, the child no longer can use the car seat then it is to be returned to Central Pennsylvania Community Action, so that if the car seat still meets the safety guidelines it can be given to another child who is in need. Central PA Community Action is in charge of storing, distributing and collecting the car seats to be given to children in need. For more information please phone (814)-765-1551.
