PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Grant funds are available from Pittsfield Economic Revitalization Corp. for small businesses in Berkshire County to encourage increased use of the Internet.

A wide range of technology uses for the funds, directed to help business owners improve the management, marketing and growth of their businesses, include:
  • Website creation or enhancements
  • Network development of upgrades
  • Acquisition of computer hardware and software
  • Training on the use of software programs or website maintenance
  • Broadband access
Businesses will work with the private technology consultant best suited to their needs.
 
The program is supported by a $150,000 grant that PERC received from the Massachusetts Broadband Institute, part of the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative. Up to 10 businesses will be selected and will be responsible for 25 percent of the cost of their project. To qualify, businesses must have an annual budget of less than $500,000.
 
Businesses are encouraged to apply prior to the Jan. 31 deadline. Applications forms, eligibility requirements and further information may be obtained by calling Ann Dobrowolski at 413-499-9371 or at the Loans/Grants tab on PERC's website, PERCloans.com.
