Senator Santarsiero announces $200,000 in awards to local businesses

State Sen. Steve Santarsiero (D-10) announced the award of $200,000 to two businesses in his district from the Department of Community and Economic Development’s (DCED) COVID-19 Working Capital Access Program (CWCA). Curtin and Heefner, a law firm located in Lower Makefield Township, and Well of Life Center for Natural Health, located in Doylestown, each received the maximum amount of $100,000 through this program. This was the final round of CWCA funding, as the state moves toward re-opening.

“I am pleased that this final round of CWCA funding has brought an additional $200,000 to two businesses in my district, bringing the total amount of funds received in the 10th district to $1.4 million,” said Santarsiero. “With this last round of funding, businesses are continuing to receive critical support as we move into the yellow phase of re-opening. While this program is winding down, the positive effects on these businesses will continue to be felt as they transition into the yellow phase of re-opening.”

The CWCA Program is administered by the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority (PIDA) and provides critical working capital financing to small businesses located within the Commonwealth that are adversely impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. For more information on the CWCA program, visit
