Business Retention & Expansion Services

The Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) program is a comprehensive initiative aimed at supporting local businesses and strengthening the local economy. Specifically, the program works with businesses to identify areas where they can improve their competitiveness, whether through training, resources, or technology adoption. The program also focuses on creating new job opportunities, helping businesses develop continuity plans for economic challenges, connecting them to local networks, and linking them to sources of capital for growth and expansion. By providing these resources and support, the BRE program helps businesses to grow and succeed, ultimately leading to a more vibrant and prosperous community for all.

The BRE program focuses on several key goals, including:

  1. Create new job opportunities by identifying growth opportunities and providing support for business expansion
  2. Connect businesses to local networks, including industry associations and business support organizations
  3. Link businesses to capital sources for growth and expansion, such as traditional lending or government grants.
