The South Shore Chamber of Commerce’s Economic Development Corporation is Named One of 12 Organizations to Receive REDO Designation for 2023
The South Shore Chamber’s Economic Development Corporation has received Regional Economic Development Organization (REDO) designation from the Massachusetts Office of Business Development for 2023. This designation will help to facilitate regional projects that help grow businesses, support our workforce and contribute to the Massachusetts economy.
The South Shore Chamber’s Economic Development Corporation is one of only twelve organizations statewide to receive this designation. The REDO grants serve as a connection and conduit between start-ups, small businesses, and growing businesses in the region to state resources and support. Services include informational and educational programs on starting businesses, growing businesses, and the promotion of state programs that assist small businesses. Funds will support the creation of small business resources & local chamber programming, possible regional workforce initiatives, ongoing industry sector analysis and market insights, platforms for community infrastructure conversations, and a more robust South Shore 2030 website.
This year as part of this grant, the Economic Development Corporation was able to secure a $75,000 special project addendum for a local non-profit in Norwell. The funds will be used for capital improvements that drive future job growth and workforce development in the cultural economy.
“We are pleased to receive this designation that gives us resources to help our businesses and non-profits,” said Peter Forman, CEO of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce.
