HARRISBURG, June 24 – State Rep. Anita Kulik, D-Allegheny, today announced the disbursement of $64,346 to the LifeSpan Chartiers Senior Resource Center. The funding was awarded through the Pennsylvania Department of Aging’s 2019-20 Senior Community Center grant program. Kulik said the grants help senior centers fund projects based on their applications, such as updating and modernizing facilities, providing new health and entertainment programs, upgrading technology, and enhancing marketing opportunities. “Senior centers play a large role in ensuring our senior community has the resources and housing needed to live comfortably following retirement or in the later years of life,” Kulik said. “This funding will help LifeSpan Chartiers – already a stellar senior center in our community – provide the resources our seniors want and need, which makes it all the more rewarding to announce this funding.” There are more than 500 senior community centers throughout Pennsylvania that provide a variety of offerings, such as nutritious meals, educational opportunities, transportation services, financial and insurance counseling and exercise programs. Proceeds from the Pennsylvania Lottery help to fund these programs every year.

HARRISBURG, April 28 – Following up on the state’s recent decision to slowly rekindle parts of its economy, state Rep. Anita Kulik, D-Allegheny, said she wants to ensure small retail businesses are receiving the same consideration as larger retail corporations that have remained open throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, they’re a staple of our character and a driving force behind the forward progression of the Commonwealth,” Kulik said. “The COVID-19 pandemic forced a lot of these small businesses to close their doors. Meanwhile, larger corporations found ways to flourish despite the drastic – yet necessary – measures we all were forced to take. My bill seeks to ensure small retail businesses have a fighting chance to get back on their feet.” Kulik’s legislation looks to help small businesses secure the “essential business” title that many larger corporations were able to secure at the beginning of the COVID-19 health crisis. Specifically, the bill would only apply to retail businesses with 10 or fewer employees. The business would be allowed to operate on a limited basis during the health crisis, allowing only shopping online and through phone ordering. Kulik said the orders would then be picked up curbside or delivered to a customer’s home by the business, mail or other service. No customers would Read more

HARRISBURG, March 24 – Hoping to relieve the economic strain placed on all non-life sustaining businesses forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, state Rep. Anita Kulik, D-Allegheny, has introduced legislation that would extend the date by which businesses would have to remit sales tax. “We’re in a situation that has called for unfortunate yet necessary measures to help curb the spread of COVID-19,” Kulik said. “Businesses have taken a hit as a result and are forced to deal with a sudden loss of income. This legislation would help them retain a source of income they’d otherwise miss out on due to COVID-19.” Kulik said the legislation would give businesses an extra 45 days to remit their sales taxes to the state Department of Revenue, ensuring they have time to remit their sales tax while still requiring their payments during the current fiscal year. This legislation is expected to be considered by House members in the near future. Read more
