The Small Business Advantage Grant provides 50% matching grants, up to a maximum of $9,500 ($7,000 for lighting-only upgrades), to enable Pennsylvania small businesses to purchase energy efficient or pollution prevention equipment or adopt waste reduction processes. The program is open July 25, 2017 through June 30, 2018, or until funds are exhausted.

Pennsylvania-based businesses with 100 or fewer full-time employees are eligible. Eligible applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis, and must save the small business a minimum of $500 and at least 25% annually in energy consumption or pollution prevention related expenses.

An overview of the program, eligibility requirements and application instructions are included in the Small Business Advantage Grant Package (see links below). Beginning in 2017, all applications must be submitted on-line. Sample hardcopies of the Grant Package may be obtained by calling DEP's Small Business Ombudsman Office at 717-772-5160.
