Commissioners Gave $1.8 Million In COVID Relief Funds To These 110 Companies

Beaver County has awarded $1.84 million to 110 companies that applied for relief under the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security).

The county received a total of 220 applications from non-profit, for-profit, and local governmental entities seeking a share of $14.8 million in pass-through funding made available from legislation passed this summer by Congress. The grants must be used for COVID-19 related expenses and have to be spent no later than December 20.

Commissioners decided to prioritize a first round of grants, not to exceed $25,000 each, to nonprofits and companies that had not yet received other COVID-related funding such as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) or Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL).
