Support Still Available for Local Businesses Impacted by COVID-19
The York County Office of Economic Development has been supporting our local businesses this past year with important information and resources. New programs are still being launched so be sure to check the COVID-19 Business Resources on their website, often, to see what is available. The links, qualifications, and details on how to apply for these grants and other loans are just a click away. In addition to the financial support, York County Economic Development continues to host a Lunch and Learn Series and other small business and networking seminars that are also geared toward surviving these challenging times.
