Small Business Advantage Grant Program Now Open, Says Toepel
10/5/2010

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Small Business Advantage Grant Program is open to small businesses looking to conserve energy, says Rep. Marcy Toepel (R-Montgomery).

Under the program, businesses can apply for a 50 percent matching grant of up to $7,500 for taking actions that save at least 10 percent annually in energy or pollution-related costs.  To be eligible, an applicant must be a for-profit corporation, LLC, partnership, sole proprietorship or other legal entity with 100 or fewer full-time employees.  The grant-supported project must be located within a Pennsylvania facility owned by the applicant.

 

Funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.  The application deadline is Nov. 5.

 

Since its inception in 2004, the Small Business Advantage Grant Program has awarded more than $5.8 million to 1,041 businesses across Pennsylvania.

 

Applications must be mailed or hand-delivered to the Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Energy and Technology Deployment, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, P.O. Box 8772, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8772, ATTN: Small Business Advantage.
