Description of Fellowship
This summer, Steph was a Rappaport fellow placed in the City of Boston Mayor’s Office. She was working to help small businesses unravel the permitting process and found several ways to tackle this. She helped the Office of Business Development and Boston Redevelopment Authority to launch a joint website that will go live in mid-October; wrote and graphically designed several information packets to be placed in a forthcoming Licensing &Permitting Office; and produced a Boston News Network program featuring a panel discussion about the processes involved in obtaining various permits.
