Listen: Congressman Matt Cartwright Urges Farmers to Apply for Disaster Loans

On May 5, Rep. Matt Cartwright (PA-8th) spoke to WJFF’s Jason Dole about political life during lockdown and Northeast Pennsylvania’s outlook on reopening, since the region wasn’t included in Gov. Wolf’s first wave of planned openings.

In particular, the congressman urged farmers to apply for Economic Injury Disaster Loans through the U.S. Small Business Administration. Small agricultural businesses had been excluded until a bipartisan push from Cartwright, Rep. Delgado (NY-19) , and over 70 others.
