Local Businesses Can Apply Now for Next Round of COVID-19 Relief Funds

The second round of the COVID-19 Relief Statewide Small Business Assistance grant program is open for applications and will remain open until Aug 28. This program awards grants of up to $50,000 to small businesses that have been economically impacted by COVID-19, with a specific focus on historically disadvantaged businesses.

Small businesses interested in this program must apply through a participating Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and can visit pabusinessgrants.com for resources, including an application preparation checklist and eligibility details.

As a reminder, if you applied for this program during the first round but did not receive a grant, you do not need to reapply – your application will simply roll over.
