Businesses: COVID-19 Loan Program (SEDA-COG)

SEDA-COG has a new loan program to provide funding for businesses impacted by the COVID-19 crisis in its 11 central PA counties, including Snyder Co.  The SEDA-COG EDA COVID-19 Loan has limited funds and will end once all funds are exhausted, but requires no payments for the first six months.

For-profit businesses can apply for loans of at least $10,000.  Contact SEDA-COG at 570-524-4491 for interest rates.  The funds can be used for acquisition of commercial real estate, working capital, and equipment.  Funds can be disbursed based on past working capital expenses.

Assistance from CARES – Heating Unit Repair or Replacement

If your heat source is malfunctioning, contact the County Assistance Office (Snyder County: 570-374-8126) to see if you qualify for a heating unit repair or replacement.  The Assistance Office will notify SEDA-COG and a subcontractor will be assigned to do the work.  Funds are available until August 31, 2020 or until they are gone.
