New Pandemic Resources for Small Businesses
July 9, 2020
The Governor’s Task Force on Business and Jobs Recovery has announced a new website and campaign, Calling All Californians: #ShopSafeShopLocal, which provides resources to small business on how to make modifications to protect against the spread of COVID-19. The website also encourages Californians to support small businesses in their communities.
The website includes technical assistance in 31 different languages, resources, discounts and offers from state partners, a free customizable digital toolkit, and the latest state industry guidance and county variances. It also provides a link to help small businesses find the state’s extraordinary network of Small Business Support Centers, which provide free one-on-one consulting and no-cost or low-cost trainings to help businesses build resiliency, strengthen operations, or get started, as well as connecting them with nonprofit lenders to help access state loan programs. The campaign also includes a new website,SafelyMakingCA.org, which is a marketplace for Californians to obtain personal protective equipment.
