Bloomsburg Exploring Business Assistance Programs

The Town of Bloomsburg is exploring the possibility of utilizing some of its emergency funding to provide assistance to businesses negatively impacted by the pandemic. Before moving forward with developing a program, determining business needs is necessary. Funds directly assisting for-profit businesses in the Town could fund:

  • Machinery, furniture, fixtures, and equipment used for business purposes related to COVID-19
  • Working capital
    • Payroll
    • Rent/mortage
    • Utilities such as oil, gas, electric, water/sewer, internet, phone
    • Supplies needed for day-to-day operations up to 90 days
    • Insurance, accounting, legal services
    • Advertising
  • Inventory

Businesses with needs should send their information to Jamie Shrawder at SEDA-COG at [email protected] by this Friday, April 2nd.
