Lang Encourages Eligible Businesses to Apply for New Covid-Relief Grants
June 30, 2021

COLUMBUS— State Senator George Lang (R- West Chester) today encouraged eligible businesses and industries to apply for newly available COVID-19 relief grants.


"Small businesses, entertainment venues and restaurants were some of the hardest industries hit during the COVID-19 pandemic, yet showed tremendous resiliency in protecting their staff and customers all while adapting to regulations and restrictions," Lang said. "I was proud to vote along with my colleagues for this necessary relief, and it is my hope that all eligible institutions take advantage of these grants in order to offset some of the effects of the last year."
