The SBA sometimes refers to these grants as “advances,” but you are not required to repay this money to the government. The application process involves filling out a simple SBA form requesting an Economic Injury Disaster Recovery Loan (EIDL), which provides for the advance even if the loan is not granted. Initially, $10 billion was allocated by the government for these grants, but due to the overwhelming amount of applications, the

In states such as Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, where live racing was halted in mid- to late March, and in Delaware, where the meet is scheduled to begin May 27, there is no pari-mutuel revenue from live racing or full-card simulcasts. And casino gambling, the largest generator of purse revenue in those states, also has been

  POSTED ON MARCH 11, 2020 BY KEVIN SHELLY   Like the rest of the Pennsylvania equine world at the moment, Donald L. Brown Jr.‘s plans are on hold. That’s due to a proposal by Gov. Tom Wolf to break a trust fund that supports horse racing. Wolf had approved the trust law just two years ago. Now though, Wolf wants to divert trust funds and use them to create up to 25,000 scholarships for students attending one of 14 state universities in the Commonwealth.

Among them, ongoing state budget hearings, no legislative language, no named bill sponsors, no clear bipartisan support, as well as probable legal action if the plan is
