Berkshire Consumer Services Program received the funding as a local consumer program, and Berkshire County Regional Housing received the grant as a face-to-face mediation program.

Local consumer programs provide information to consumers concerning state and federal consumer protection laws, and also offer voluntary consumer advocacy and assistance services. Face-to-face mediation programs support the resolution of consumer and landlord/tenant disputes.
