March 16, 2009

If you live in rural Pennsylvania, you can find business and other development assistance with today’s State Agency Database Highlight:OK

Rural Access Guide – Find agencies and assistance with rural projects. From the website, “The Guide was designed to help local government officials, nonprofit organizations, community groups and individuals find the assistance they need for projects and programs. Information in the database was originally compiled in 1999/2000 and continues to be updated regularly. Information in the guide is meant to be used as a basic outline of available programs.”

Records contain contact information, websites when available and a basic description of the assistance program offered.

PA: Administrative Code

December 27, 2008

Housekeeping note: Thanks to those few of you who still visit this blog. Now that some of our other projects are out of the way, it is our intention to restore weekly service to this blog. There are more than enough state agency databases to keep up that pace for the foreseeable future. If there is a particular subject you’re interested in that you think there might or should be a database for, leave us a comment and we’ll try to find and post a related database.

Today’s State Agency Database Highlight is:

Pennsylvania Code – the Pennsylvania administrative Code changes effective through 38 Pa.B. 6350 (November 15, 2008.

The site helpfully tells you that you are in the wrong place for statutes and laws. The code database may be browsed or searched by keyword and limited by code title.
