Economic Prosperity Impact Council (EPIC)

The Economic Prosperity Impact Council is a Berkshire United Way, countywide, community led coalition that aims to build pathways to sustainable incomes.

  • Develop and implement strategies to address population level results
  • Create strategic work groups as needed
  • Develop collaborations and partnerships
  • Identify additional resources
  • Assist in developing investment recommendations for final approval by Berkshire United Way Board of Directors
  • Develop and monitor performance measures with reports from Community Partners
