The COVID Recovery Program (CRP) is a collaborative initiative among local partners – SEWN, NWIRC, Rapid Response, and the Clarion and Gannon Universities Small Business Development Centers (SBDC).
This Program provides accurate and timely assistance to companies in northwest and north central PA counties. Information gathered from companies is used to identify one or more partners who can provide specific, targeted assistance to businesses during this critical time as PA businesses are moving into the yellow.
To participate in the Program, businesses located in Clarion, Crawford, Erie, Forest, Lawrence, Mercer, Venango, and Warren counties need to take a short five minute survey.
The business will go through an intake process where companies are assessed based on their current status. Once the assessment is complete, businesses are matched with the appropriate Program partner for further assistance.
Not all businesses are starting from the same point as we all work our way through this pandemic. With our matrix of services and partners identified for the Program, we are confident ALL businesses will get the assistance they need.
Grant funding received by the NWIRC specifically to target COVID -19 impacted companies is the thrust behind the development of this no-cost Program. SEWN’s traditional free specialized consulting services to small & medium sized manufacturers will be a critical component of the COVID Recovery Program. Our consultants look forward to providing the expertise you have trusted from us for over 30 years.
