COVID-19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program (CHIRP)

Lebanon County will receive approximately $1.6 million in grant funding through the Pennsylvania COVID-19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program to be administered through the Lebanon Valley Economic Development Corporation beginning March 15, 2021 and ends June 15, 2021 or until all funds have been expended but not to exceed June 15, 2021. Grants will be awarded to eligible applicants for the purpose of reimbursing revenue losses in increments of $5,000 with a maximum grant amount of $50,000.


COVID-19 has changed the way we live, the way we work and the way we communicate. It does not, however, diminish our resolve to come together to see our communities and our residents through this global pandemic.

Rely on the Forward Together team to provide you with the resources that you need to navigate through these challenging times. Our goal is to help you find the assistance and the resources that you need to help speed the recovery period.

Forward will serve as primary site for Lebanon County businesses and community by providing information on Public Mitigation, Human & Social Services, Education, Business Assistance, Economic Vitality, and a host of other items.
