Need financial assistance? Don’t know where to begin? This Zoom Forum can help!


  • Teri Anderson, Executive Director of MassHire Franklin Hampshire Career Center, will provide guidance on how self-employed, gig workers, religious workers, people seeking part-time work, and others not otherwise eligible for unemployment assistance can apply for federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance in Massachusetts (program registration planned to start April 30).

  • MJ Adams, Community and Economic Development Director for the City of Greenfield, will share the latest information about small grants Greenfield is preparing to offer. The City of Greenfield has small business revolving loan funds that are administered by the Franklin County Community Development Corporation (FCCDC). We have been working actively to modify the loan program to one that provides forgivable loans (grants) to small businesses that are dealing with the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This forum is open to all but is geared towards Greenfield business owners.
