Pennsylvania's Small Business Advantage Grant Program

Date: October 11, 2022

Grants will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis in the order in which they are received, until March 24, 2023, or when funds are depleted, whichever occurs first.

The PA Department of Environmental Protection announced the availability of up to $1 million in grant funding for the 19th year of the Commonwealth’s Small Business Advantage Grant Program. The program assists small businesses undertaking energy efficiency, pollution prevention or natural resource conservation projects. With nearly 1 million small businesses in the Pennsylvania, well-designed projects can help small businesses cut operating costs and grow the Commonwealth’s economy, while simultaneously protecting the environment.

The program is a first-come, first-served grant program that provides matching grants, ranging from a maximum of 50% or $5,000, up to 80% or $8,000, whichever is less. Maximum funding will vary based on project location and environmental impact. Eligible projects must save the small business a minimum of $500 per year and at least 20% in annual energy consumption or pollution-related expenses.

Natural resource protection projects are exempt from the minimum savings requirements; however, projects must provide enough information to allow quantification of the sediment and nutrient diversion from the directly related receiving waterway to be eligible.

To be eligible, the applicant’s business must be Commonwealth-based, be registered to do business in the Commonwealth, and be a for-profit small business with 100 or fewer full-time equivalent (FTE) employees. The applicable grant project must be undertaken in or on a facility located in this Commonwealth. Applicants may not have current environmental violations or obligations due to the Commonwealth.

Grants will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis in the order in which they are received, until March 24, 2023, or when funds are depleted, whichever occurs first.
