LANCASTER – While making a visit to a downtown Lancaster small business, Gov. Tom Wolf called on state lawmakers to take immediate action in allocating some of the the $1.7 billion in federal American Rescue Plan Act funding to small business owners. Earlier this month, Wolf proposed $225 million to provide grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 to small businesses that have been economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses can use the grants to cover operating expenses and access technical assistance, including training and guidance to stabilize and relaunch their businesses. The program would prioritize women and minority-owned businesses and rural communities.
