Grants for Small Business Available
The PA Small Business Advantage Grant Program provides matching funds to for-profit businesses with a maximum of 100 full-time employees for improvements in energy efficiency and pollution prevention. The business must also be the primary source of employment for at least one full-time employee. The Department of Environmental Protection administers the grants, providing up to $7,500 for proposed projects. All projects must demonstrate at least a 15% economic gain, or savings, through energy conservation or pollution prevention on an annual basis as a direct result of the proposed project. A recipient of the grant must submit a follow-up report to the DEP twelve months after the project completion date detailing the environmental benefits and the financial costs and benefits as a result of the project. Not eligible for awards are outdoor wood burners, wood-fired boilers, and some types of building envelope measures.
