DEP Accepting Applications For Small Business Advantage Grants To Support Water Quality Restoration, Energy Efficiency, Pollution Prevention Projects

The Department of Environmental Protection is now accepting applications for up to $1 million
Small Business Advantage Grants on a first-come, first-served basis.  (formal notice)

The Program assists small businesses undertaking energy efficiency, pollution prevention or natural resource conservation projects. 

The Program is a first-come, first-served grant program that provides up to 50% matching grants, up to a maximum of $5,000 for all project types. Eligible projects must save the small business a minimum of $500 per year and at least 25% in annual energy consumption or pollution-related expenses.

Natural resource protection projects are exempt from the minimum savings requirements. However, projects must quantify the sediment and nutrient diversion from the directly related receiving waterway to be eligible.

For more information, visit DEP’s Small Business Advantage Grants webpage. Questions should be directed to DEP’s Small Business Ombudsman by sending email to:  or calling 717-783-9640.
