Pennsylvania's Department of Environmental Protection Awards Another 134 Grants to Small Businesses
Eligible businesses must have 100 or fewer employees. The grants are up to $9,500 each and provide matching grant money for the cost of projects that will save 25 percent a year in the prevention of pollution or in energy savings.
Projects can include installation of high-efficiency HVAC systems, high-efficiency lighting, and installation of energy-efficient heat pumps. These and other related projects that save energy and are friendly to the environment are eligible for the grant program.
The goal of the grant program is to support small business owners across Pennsylvania and to encourage more business owners to help protect the environment against pollution and do their part in conserving the country's energy for future use. The grant program has awarded more than $8.5 million in grants to more than 1776 small businesses across the state since 2004.
