Time is Running Out to Apply for DEP’s Small Business Grants



The Department of Environmental Protection is reminding Pennsylvania small-business owners of the September 6 deadline to apply for DEP’s Small Business Advantage Grant to finance pollution prevention and energy efficiency projects.
 
Businesses have two weeks left to apply for 50-percent matching funds of up to $9,500 to adopt or acquire energy-efficient or pollution-prevention equipment or procedures.
 
Applicants must be a for-profit corporation, limited liability corporation, partnership, sole proprietorship or other legal entity with 100 or fewer full-time employees. The grant-supported project must be located in Pennsylvania, be owned by the applicant and save the business at least 25 percent plus $500 in annual energy consumption or in pollution handling or prevention related expenses.
 
Applicants may be manufacturers, retailers, service providers, mining operators or agricultural businesses. Eligible projects include HVAC and boiler upgrades, high-efficiency lighting, solvent recovery systems, waste recycling systems and auxiliary power units deployed as anti-idling technology for trucks.
 
Businesses may apply until Sept. 6. Funding is eligible for those costs incurred between July 8, 2013 and June 30, 2014.
 
Applications must be mailed to the Department of Environmental Protection’s Grant Center, P.O. Box 8776, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8776 or hand delivered to DEP’s Grant Center, 15th Floor, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market St., Harrisburg, PA 17101-2301. Faxes or electronic submissions will not be accepted.
