Pennsylvania Community Development Financial Institutions Network (CFDI) - The Northside Community Development Fund (NSCDF)
Grants to Pennsylvania small businesses in eligible counties to mitigate financial losses incurred due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Funding is intended for businesses that are currently operating or have a clear plan to re-open once the Commonwealth permits re-opening of the business. Grants are available to businesses within Allegheny, Beaver, Greene, Lawrence, and Washington Counties.
The program will give additional consideration to the following factors: women-owned businesses, communities targeted for business investment by state government programs like Main Street and Elm Street, and rural communities.
At least 50% of the grants to small businesses will be awarded to Historically Disadvantaged businesses. Historically Disadvantaged businesses are at least 51% owned and operated by persons who are Black, Hispanic, Native American, Asian American, or Pacific Islander because they have traditionally been discriminated against and disadvantaged when seeking financial services and financial products.
