Technical Assistance

NCNMEDD was granted funds from the 2020 CARES Act to provide specialized technical assistance to businesses in our region. Project examples are setting up contactless payment, developing a website, creating a technology plan or assisting with permitting for outdoor dining or grower certifications. Participants in the Working Now loan program are given priority to the technical assistance program if they choose. If you have questions about the technical assistance program contact Alison Turner  by phone at (505) 716-5580 or by email
