HARRISBURG – Impact Harrisburg and the City of Harrisburg have partnered to build a one million dollar fund to help Harrisburg small businesses impacted by the coronavirus shut-down. The Neighborhood Business Stabilization Program (NBSP) is designed to provide emergency cash flow help during these difficult times. 

Grants of up to $10,000 will be offered to neighborhood businesses who are struggling financially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The primary objective of the program is to help neighborhood businesses survive this health crisis, as well as to help them provide goods and services to Harrisburg’s residents to the maximum possible extent.  

This program is intended for City-licensed neighborhood businesses located in the City of Harrisburg. The application process opens on Friday, April 24, and all eligible Harrisburg small businesses are encouraged to apply. 

“Small business drives the economic development in Harrisburg,” said Mayor Papenfuse. “I fully support this partnership and this funding opportunity will greatly help the City’s small businesses.”
