More than 40 courses are currently scheduled in the categories of business and nonprofit basics, business succession planning, developing an online presence, and nonprofit board development and retention. Training specific to grocery stores will be available soon. Many of the courses will be delivered online via Zoom, but some will be in person.

The training has been developed as part of the region’s response and recovery to the economic impacts of COVID-19. It is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration’s CARES Act Recovery Assistance grant awarded to the NCRPC. Training will go through June 2022 and is free, but advance registration is required.
