PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Gov. Dan McKee said Monday that small businesses could receive up to $10,000 under Rhode Island’s new technical assistance program to help continue their recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

“As I always say, Rhode Island has momentum,” said McKee. “The Technical Assistance Program will offer small businesses the tools they need to build on that momentum and come out of these pandemic years stronger than ever before.”

The RI Rebounds Technical Assistance Program applications are now open for eligible small businesses looking for technical assistance.

McKee said examples of the technical assistance include:

  • Accounting and bookkeeping
  • Legal advice and services
  • Marketing, communications, branding and public relations
  • Customer data and user experience analytics
  • Strategic and business planning
  • Human resource and payroll services
  • Information and computer technology
  • Website development support
  • Business funding pitch and grant writing
  • Supply chain and procurement
  • E-commerce

McKee’s office said the RI Rebounds Technical Assistance Program is being administered by Skills for Rhode Island’s Future through the risbHUB.
