The Pennsylvania Horse Breeders Association will begin offering grants for breeders, the group announced in a letter Wednesday afternoon.
“Thanks to the generosity of Chuck Zacney and Glenn Bennett, along with a contribution from the PHBA, we are happy to announce that we are offering grants to help alleviate some of the financial hardship you are experiencing,” the letter read.
The grants will be awarded as follows: $250/horse, up to a maximum of $1,000 (four horses). Breeders are asked to submit a letter explaining their financial need, but must meet the following criteria:
· Be a current 2020 PHBA Member
· Breeder must have bred and currently own a domiciled registered Pa-bred three years of age or older and submit proof of such
· Pa-bred or Non-Pa-bred mares may qualify as long as they have foaled in Pa in 2019 or 2020 and meet other listed criteria
· Horse Breeding is your primary business or you've just lost your primary source of income due to Covid-19
All information should be submitted and postmarked by June 15; contact Brian Sanfratello ([email protected]) with any questions.
