[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Call Center for Small Businesses and Workers

County Seal

The County Workforce Development Board (WDB) and Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors are opening a new call center to meet the needs of Contra Costa businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The call center was created with the support of the County’s Economic Development arm of the Department of Conservation and Development (DCD) and Employment and Human Services Department (EHSD).

Businesses and workers facing an unanticipated decrease in the demand for certain goods and services can reach WDB call center staff who are equipped to provide information and resources for dealing with lay-offs, insurance needs, federal small business loans, and payroll subsidies. The call center team can also assist with tapping into programs to reduce utility costs, access online career training, protect payroll, and other business services.

The COVID-19 Call Center is available at 833-320-1919, Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 5 am. Staff are highly trained and knowledgeable, and have extensive experience supporting business leaders and job seekers with education, training, resources, partnerships and public programs.

See the Press Release for more information.
