On August 10, the Pennsylvania governor announced that $96 million in state grants have been awarded to small businesses impacted by Covid-19 through the Covid-19 Relief Statewide Small Business Assistance fund. The announcement notes that the second and final round of funding has opened and will run through August 28.
