BreakOut Program
for small businesses ready to move to the next level

A project funded by the
US Department of Agriculture Rural Development Office

Summary of Client Investment: Estimated Resource Hours and Fees
Includes hours by phase for Resource Team, Project Lead and Client


• Breakout Program participant’s estimated investment in man hours is based on one client participant. If you have two people involved those hours will double. Your investment in the program is a combination of dollars ($1,500 for participation fee) and your time (17 to 30 man hours for each participant you involve).

• You can consume up to 50 Resource Team hours during your project. If you do not use those hours thru the formal process, you can explore ways to use specific Resource Team members to move your plan forward.
