Small Business Phone Bank Volunteers Needed (Remote)
Inland Empire United Way
The Microenterprise Business Grant Program is a United Way Inland Valleys project in partnership with the City of Riverside Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program that offers a one-time grant of up to $7,500 to help assist Riverside small businesses with their needs during the local emergency.
Volunteers are needed to promote the Microenterprise Grant Program by calling eligible business owners in the City of Riverside and providing them information. Volunteers will be providing business owners with information such as: the website where they can apply for the grant, who can apply, and what is needed.
Volunteers must have access to a laptop or computer, have reliable internet access, a cellphone, and be able to utilize Microsoft Excel to track calls and record information. Bilingual Spanish-speaking volunteers are highly recommended, as we will be working with small businesses to promote the microenterprise grant. Volunteers are not expected to help business owners with the grant. They are only expected to refer business owners to the website. The CDBG will providing support for the grant applications.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
