In July, the Borough will resume in-person meetings. The details of how these meetings will be safely conducted can be accessed here. The Borough will continue to provide a nonline meeting room. The events page will be updated with information about how to join using a computer or calling in with a phone.
If you have questions about how to join meetings, or would prefer to share your comments via email or phone prior to the meeting, please contact the borough office Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Comments may be submitted via email or phone up to 30 minutes before the scheduled meeting start time.
We are asking all attendees to mute themselves when they join and instead use the chat function to express any comments or questions you may have. We are asking you to do this to limit the feedback and background noises that can be distractions on these calls. The borough thanks you for your support as we make this change.

COVID-19 BUSINESS FUNDING
To help navigate through the financial impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on Pennsylvania businesses, the U.S. Small Business Administration is offering loans to help offset the revenue lost. We recommend that you continue to routinely check back on the DCED COVID-19 Resources webpage as additional information is added.
SBA PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan is designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. The SBA will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities.
An additional $310 billion has just been approved to extend the PPP through the U.S. Small Business Administration. Applications can be submitted today from participating program lenders and is on a first come, first served basis.
PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM LENDERS
If you wish to begin preparing your application, you can download a copy of the PPP borrower application form to see the information that will be requested from you when you apply with a lender. To find eligible PPP lenders near you, visit the U.S. Small Business Administration website and type in your zip code
CHILDCARE FOR ESSENTIAL WORKERS
The Department of Human Services (DHS) released a new tool on the department’s website on March 27th that is designed to help essential workers connect with child-care providers that have been granted a waiver by the department’s Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) to continue serving the families of essential personnel during the COVID-19 emergency.
At this time, the Dauphin County Treasurer’s office will not be sending any staff to the borough to collect taxes. If you need to pay taxes, please see the Treasurer’s website, email their office at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the office at (717) 780-6550.

If you need time beyond July 15th, please speak with a tax professional or go to IRS.gov to file a request for an extension.
