Introducing the new Small Business Assistance Award

Over the past few years, Sunbury’s Revitalization, Inc.’s Business and Economic Development committee has placed an emphasis on supporting new business through the annual Biz Pitch Competition.  “This year, we wanted to create a new program that supports and encourages all small business in Sunbury”, said Derek Wolfgang, co-chair of the committee.  “We are happy to announce the new Small Business Assistance Award, designed to assist start-up, new or existing small businesses within Sunbury, PA 17801.”

Applications for 2019 awards are accepted from September 30 – December 30, 2019.  Small businesses may be awarded up to $1,000 in monetary contribution and/or in-kind services for the project/program for which they are applying. Applications are evaluated based on the businesses needs for further growth, improvement, economic impact and alignment with Sunbury’s Revitalization, Inc. mission and values.  Emphasis will be placed on the significant impact the program / project will have on the small business.

Applications must be submitted within the established time frame for internal review by a panel of members from Sunbury’s Revitalization, Inc.’s Business and Economic Development Committee.  Winners will be announced at an official awards ceremony early next year (dates and times to be determined).

Visit Sunbury’s Revitalization, Inc. for more information regarding the application process and program.
