Berkshire Economic Recovery Program Technical Assistance Offerings
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — 1Berkshire, in partnership with Berkshire Regional Planning Commission and with support from the United States Economic Development Administration, announces the second slate of technical assistance offerings of the Berkshire Economic Recovery Program (BERP).
Through a series of seven cohorts across four topical areas in the Fall of 2021, the Berkshire Economic Recovery Program Technical Assistance series was able to support more than 20 businesses through targeted, need-specific offerings, resulting in business improvements, and quantified by the over $200,000 in funding collectively accessed by businesses through their participation.
Going into the Spring of 2022, the series continues with returning offerings including the popular “Essentials of Digital Marketing” and “Get Ready to Get Funded”, also now being joined by at least two new topics; critical communication skills, and branding for business growth. Additional workshops and technical assistance may be added over the coming weeks.
Participants in each topical cohort will join a scheduled kickoff workshop with the technical assistance provider. Upon completion of the workshop, each participant will be provided up to two hours of free one-on-one technical assistance from the consultant leading the workshop.
