Scottsdale’s Economic Development Department has launched a new initiative aimed at assisting Scottsdale small businesses. The Scottsdale Small Business Assistance Center (SSBAC) will serve as the City of Scottsdale’s virtual one stop shop for Scottsdale businesses looking for information on available business support programs and resources during the COVID-19 crisis.
The SSBAC looks to assist Scottsdale businesses with questions regarding Federal, State and other government funding programs and connect them with critical resources. Businesses can rely on the center to provide the most up to date information on assistance programs, step by step guides and useful webinars. Upon contacting the virtual center, individuals will receive an email from the SSBAC team with valuable resources and a commitment that a team member will follow up directly within one business day.
“With all the available programs and sometimes confusing information, it’s important for our Scottsdale businesses to know we have a team on hand ready to help. Our Scottsdale businesses are working tirelessly navigating complex programs while at the same time trying to run their businesses and take care of their employees. The SSBAC is designed as a resource to get information and we look forward to helping our small businesses,” says Rob Millar Economic Development Director.
The new Scottsdale Small Business Assistance Center can be reached by texting 480-312-3111, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting www.ScottsdaleAz.gov and searching “Small Business Assistance Center”.
