BUCKS COUNTY –  May 5, 2020 – State Senator Steve Santarsiero (D-10) announced the award of $400,000 to four businesses in his district from Department of Community and Economic Development’s (DCED) COVID-19 Working Capital Access Program (CWCA).

Briarwood Recreation located in Furlong, Baldwin Publishing located in Washington Crossing, Gemini Plastics located in Fallsington, and Roger S. Wright Furniture located in Hilltown Township each received the maximum amount of $100,000 through this program.  

“I was pleased to see four local businesses in my district receive funding from DCED,” said Sen.
