Those eligible to apply include nonprofit corporations; Pennsylvania schools, colleges and universities; any Pennsylvania municipality; and public or private corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and other legal business entities.

Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Aug. 15 and must be submitted online using the state's eGrants system.
