And Blair County announcing that it will begin round 1 of its COVID-19 hospitality industry recovery program grant cycle. To help out the county’s hospitality industry.
The CHIRP grant was initiated by Governor Wolf a few weeks ago, to issue 167 million dollars across the state.
Officials urge everyone to not wait to file, because they won’t have additional rounds if all of the money is used up in round one.
“We’re making the information available now, so that everyone that is eligible has the necessary time to work with their internal staff, or their accountants, to prepare the information that we’re going to need I order to process
your grant requests.”
The grants are being administered through the ABCD corporation. Businesses can go to ABCDCORP.COM to read program eligibility requirements and guidelines and apply.
Officials say priority will be given to any Blair County business who hasn’t received and prior covid relief funding.
