Gov. Wolf and Bucks County Officials Celebrate $7 Million in COVID Relief Funding to Bucks County Restaurants

Governor Tom Wolf joined the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, Bucks County Commissioners, Bristol Borough Mayor Joseph Saxton, local lawmakers, Bucks County Economic Development Corporation, Visit Bucks County, the Bucks County Redevelopment Authority, and the owners of Itri Wood Fired to highlight the $7 million in grant funding provided to Bucks County restaurants through the COVID-19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program (CHIRP).

"Our hotels, restaurants, and bars have faced so many difficult challenges over the past year-and-a-half, and through it all, Pennsylvanians stood behind them-showing support for their favorite local eateries in incredible ways," said Gov. Wolf. "My administration is proud to help by providing this critical financial assistance, and we are grateful to our local partners who put in a tremendous effort to get these grants to businesses as quickly as possible."

Last year, Governor Tom Wolf secured $145 million in funding support businesses adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the commonwealth has worked with counties and economic development partners to quickly send assistance to the hospitality industry.
