Resource Roundup: Available Grants, PPE, and More

Jul 14, 2020

Over the past several months there has been quite a bit of information out there on available resources, PPE, PPP, grants, various funding opportunities, seminars, virtual networking opportunities, and announcements.  With so much information available, it can be easy to gloss over content, or think “I’ll come back and read that later.”  at MEDP we want to make it easier for you to filter through the information, and we try to keep our Covid-19 Resource Page updated regularly. We know that social media fatigue is real, and so in case you missed some of our postings over the last several weeks, we wanted to highlight a few of the local resources and upcoming opportunities that are available for businesses in our area.
