RIDLEY PARK, June 30 – State Rep. David Delloso, D-Delaware, will host a virtual town hall on Zoom at 2 p.m. Thursday, July 2 for the purpose of assisting local business owners who are applying for grants through the COVID-19 Relief PA Statewide Small Business Assistance program.

Grants are managed through local Community Development Financial Institutions, and Rep. Delloso will be joined by Jim Burnett of West Philadelphia Financial Services Institution to discuss requirements, eligibility and how businesses can apply for this much-needed assistance.
