Governor Wolf recently announced a relief package for Pennsylvania small businesses. The COVID-19 Relief Pennsylvania Statewide Small Business Assistance program will provide grants ranging between $5,000 and $50,000 to small businesses that have been economically impacted by COVID-19. A business MUST meet the following criteria to be eligible:
- Be physically located, certified to do business, AND generate at least 51% of their revenues in Pennsylvania;
- Have annual revenue of $1 million or less prior to COVID-19; AND
- Have 25 or fewer full-time equivalent employees prior to February 15, 2020.
This program prioritizes small businesses and at least 50% of the grants will be going to those described as historically disadvantaged businesses. Unfortunately, it is not available to nonprofits, churches or other religious organizations.
Detailed information about this program, including how and what is needed to apply, can be found here. Please note the application window will begin Tuesday, June 30. This is NOT a first-come first-serve program and the application window will remain open for 10 days. Additional rounds of funding may become available.
