HARRISBURG – As Pennsylvania businesses gradually return to pre-COVID-19 operations, Rep. Tom Mehaffie (R-Dauphin) announced that CARES Act grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 are available for eligible small businesses beginning June 30.

Small businesses can apply for grants to offset lost revenue caused by the pandemic and the resulting shutdown order.

“Businesses across Pennsylvania suffered substantial losses when closed during COVID-19. These federal CARES Act funds can provide some help as stores, restaurants and service providers rebuild in our communities,” Mehaffie 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.
