The $2 trillion stimulus package approved by Congress is on its way, but in the meantime, small businesses are struggling. This has led some companies to start offering grants to help them deal through the COVID-19 recovery. Salesforce is one of those companies.
The announcement of the Salesforce Care Small Business Grants initiative will offer $10,000 to keep businesses afloat. The infusion of capital will help businesses address their inventory and payroll needs. In addition to the capital, Salesforce is making some of its solutions available for free along with a host of res.
Salesforce Care Small Business Grants
The grant from Salesforce will be for a total of $5 million. The funds will be available starting in mid-April for U.S. businesses. The company says it will provide information for the international support of small businesses at a later date.
You can sign up to get notified for the grant here.
But the grant is just one arm of the support Salesforce is offering small businesses. A virtual toolbox of free res, solutions and tips will continue to help business owners long after the grant money.
The Virtual Toolbox
The first tool available for small businesses is Salesforce Essentials, which will be available for free for 90 days.
Salesforce Essentials will help you keep track of your customers by providing a help center 24/7. Even though business might be slow during this difficult time, you can still stay in touch with your customers and keep them informed.
