North Adams businesses are being encouraged to fill out an online survey designed to guide the use of state grant funds.
The fiscal 2018 MassWorks Infrastructure grant had initially been focused on helping small business find its customers online through social media marketing but has since morphed in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The North Adams Wayfinding Project will now assist businesses with finding resources in this dramatically changed economic environment.
Many smaller businesses have been fully or partially closed since mid-March by order of the governor to help contain the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19.
The survey takes about 5 minutes and asks business about their current status, past and future employment needs, if they plan to reopen and what their technical and training needs will be, such as legal or financial strategies or training on new platforms or social media.
