HARRISBURG – As Pennsylvania businesses slowly get back to normal operations, Rep. Andrew Lewis (R-Dauphin) announced that CARES Act grants for eligible small businesses, ranging from $5,000 to $50,000, are available beginning June 30. Small businesses can apply for grants to offset lost revenue caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting shutdown order.
“The state’s businesses have experienced devastating losses in recent months. Federal CARES Act funds can be a lifeline as the mom-and-pop businesses rebuild to provide needed goods and services to our communities,” Lewis said.
Eligible businesses may begin applying for the COVID-19 Relief Statewide Small Business Assistance program by visiting pabusinessgrants.com/
The first application window will remain open for 10 days. Applications will continue to be accepted after 10 business days but will be considered for future rounds of funding, as this is not a first-come, first-served program. Applications will be prioritized and selected for funding based on the program criteria.
This project is financed by a grant from the federal Department of U.S. Treasury, under the administration of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania CDFI Network. The PA CDFI Network is a group of 17 PA-based community development financial institutions that primarily provide financing options for small businesses.
