Sharon Accepting Small-Business Grant Applications
SHARON, Pa. — The city of Sharon is now accepting applications for a Small Business Assistance Grant Program for two weeks.
The grant application is available at CityOfSharon.net or can be picked up at the Sharon Municipal Building at 155 W. Connelly Blvd. on the second floor in the Community Development Department office. Applications are due July 29 and grant awards will be announced in August, according to a release. The application can also be downloaded here.
“The intention of this grant program is to be inclusive of the diverse needs of our local business community and to offer an application process that is easy to successfully complete,” says Melissa Phillips, community and economic development director. “Many small-business owners found that applying to the Paycheck Protection Program and other funding opportunities has been confusing and intimidating. Therefore, we are offering a number of information sessions to explain the application process in more detail and answer any questions.
“We hope this grant may benefit the small business owners who have struggled to receive benefits thus far, as well as supplementing businesses that have received other assistance,” she continues.
Businesses may be eligible for up to $10,000. Four information sessions are scheduled to guide business owners through the application process:
July 16, 6-7 p.m. at Infinite Consortium Gaming, 162 W. State St. RSVP is required. Contact Melissa Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
