  • Share |

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has begun accepting applications for Small Business Advantage Grants that will fund pollution prevention and energy efficiency projects. Manufacturers, retailers, service providers, agricultural businesses and other small businesses are encouraged to apply.

Businesses can apply for 50 percent matching funds of up to $9,500 to adopt or acquire energy efficient or pollution prevention equipment or procedures. The grants provide funding to projects that include auxiliary power units deployed as anti-idling technology trucks, HVAC and boiler upgrades, high-efficiency lighting, solvent recovery systems and waste recycling systems. Eligible projects must save the business a minimum of $500 and 25 percent annually in energy consumption or pollution related expenses.

Last year, DEP awarded 133 grants totaling more than $981,000 to Pennsylvania business, spurring more than $3.6 million in private investment.

Applications will be accepted until April 15, 2015 or fiscal year 14-15 funds are exhausted. Applicants are encouraged to apply early as they will be considered on a first come, first served basis.
