RE: CARES Act Funding for Small Businesses and Non-Profits
DATE: 7.14.2020

As many of you know, Westmoreland County has been charged with allocating a large amount of funds to local small businesses and non-profits. We are asking you for your help to spread the word to those small businesses and non-profits in your communities. You know your townships, boroughs, cities and municipalities best and who in your community may have COVID-19 related expenses and COVID-19 related lost revenue.

This Thursday the County will unveil a list of Frequently Asked Questions. We will once again be asking you for your help to distribute this FAQ list through your neighborhoods.

Please share this information with the small businesses and non-profits in your communities, encourage them to look for the FAQs and let them know the application is forthcoming. Encourage those in your communities to apply.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter. If you should require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact our office at the number listed below.
