PEDA Member Forum: COVID-19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program

PEDA’s advocacy team has been working for the past several months to assist in efforts that culminated in the legislation that created the COVID-19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program (CHIRP). PEDA leadership is pleased that Certified Economic Development Organizations (CEDOs), key members of the Commonwealth's economic development delivery system, have been given the opportunity to get this critical assistance out to Pennsylvania communities. Due to the quick turnaround and timing associated with the program, PEDA wants to assist its members with any outstanding questions or need for clarification that may exist.

An example of a key clarification that has been made known to PEDA since the issuance of program guidelines is that all applications applied for and reviewed are eligible for the administrative fee of up to $500 per application. This is a change from the original guidelines, which stated the fee could be paid only if the application was funded.

PEDA leadership wants to make sure all CEDOs are working jointly so the rollout of this program occurs as efficiently and seamlessly as possible for restaurant and bar owners, as well as for those in the accommodations industry who have been hit so hard by COVID-19. PEDA also wants to ensure that PEDA members benefit from having access to the information learned during the development of this legislation. With this in mind, PEDA will conduct a member forum on Friday, February 26th to have further discussion and open dialogue on this topic. We hope you are all able to join us!

An agenda and log-in credentials for Zoom will be provided ahead of the designated meeting date and time.
