Re: Sources of Funding for P2 Project Implementation-Any Ideas?



Warren,

SBA loans are available to businesses with less than 500 employees depending
on annual revenues.  I'd recommend contacting Chris Lynch with the PA SBDC
at (215) 573-7555.  I don't think he's the contact there for financing but
should be able to get you in touch with the right people.
