Pennsylvania Launches Small Business Advantage Grant Program
The program allows businesses to apply for a 50% matching grant of up to $7,500 when they take action that save at least 20% a year in energy and/or pollution-related costs.
Applicants must be for-profit companies with less than 100 full-time employees; must be located within the state of Pennsylvania; and must be an actual legal business. LLCs and sole proprietorships qualify.
The program, while potentially helpful, has a very short run. It began accepting application in early December 2009, but the deadline is just a month later on January 15, 2010. Those who are interested in applying must move quickly.
In addition, funds are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
