07 Nov Department of Environmental Protection • Small Business Advantage Grant
Program Overview The Department of Environmental Protection’s (Department) Small Business Advantage Grant (SBAG) will be open for its nineteenth round in 2022-2023. The SBAG provides reimbursement grants to Pennsylvania-based small businesses to adopt processes or acquire equipment which result in energy efficiency, pollution prevention, and natural resource protection. Funding can range from 50% or $5,000 (whichever is less) up to 80% or $8,000 (whichever is less) and will vary depending on environmental impact and project location (relating to Environmental Justice Areas). The Grant Calculator for the Small Business Advantage Grant has been significantly revised for 2022-2023. More detailed calculators have been developed for several previously eligible project types. These new tabs will provide a more accurate evaluation of current costs and energy use and potential savings. New calculation tabs include HVAC, Boilers, Refrigeration, Trucks, and Medical X-Rays and Scanners. Minor updates were also made to the existing Project Costs, Lighting, and Other Projects (Environmental Savings) tabs. There’s quite a bit to unpack here, but in a nutshell, if you are planning on or have upgraded your HVAC unit, boiler, medical equipment, etc. after July 1st, 2022, you could be eligible to receive funding.
