HARRISBURG – Gov. Tom Wolf announced that $145 million in funding will be distributed to all 67 PA counties through the COVID-19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program to help support the state’s hospitality industry. Funding will be provided in the form of block grants to each county based on population and will be allocated by February 28. Grants will be awarded in $5,000 increments with a $50,000 maximum. Each county will administer the funding through one or more designated Certified Economic Development Organization or Community Development Financial Institution, which will then process applications from businesses in each county. They must begin accepting applications from businesses by March 15. Program guidelines are available on the Department of Community and Economic Development’s website.
