HARRISBURGHouse Appropriations Committee Chairman Stan Saylor of York County announced the opening of a federally funded relief program for performance venues, museums, and movie theaters. The Shutter Venue Operators Grants (SVOG) were established under the American Rescue Plan, and $16.2 billion has been allocated to the program. Applicants can apply for 45% of their 2019 gross revenues, up to $10 million. If they received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, the SVOG will be reduced by the PPP loan amount.
