'NEPA Get Connected' to Aid Small Business

By Margaret Allen
NEPA Alliance is seeking small businesses that need specialized support for websites and e-commerce platforms to be able to compete during and after the COVID-19 Pandemic. NEPA’s Get Connected program targets small businesses that need an initial or updated online presence. To be considered for a $3,500 voucher, interested small businesses must complete an intake form on the website and participate in a screening process that consists of a 20-minute interview before becoming a candidate for service from one of three locally-based web development consultants. Eligible businesses must have fewer than 100 employees and be located with the seven-county region that includes Carbon, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Schuylkill and Wayne counties.
