COVID-19 SME Supports from Facebook

COVID-19 SME Supports from Facebook

 

SME Grant Programme

Facebook has announced the creation of a $100 million grant program to help 30,000 small businesses around the world.

The Facebook team is still building out this application process rapidly, so for now any interested businesses can click on the ‘Sign up for updates’ button at the bottom of the website and they’ll be the first to hear when it goes live.

Business Resources

In addition to this grant, Facebook are focused on making it easy to find help, training and support from our teams: 

  • Last week, they launched a Business Resource Hub with recommendations and resources that can help businesses cope with disruptions and keep their customers connected and informed.
  • They have created virtual training and materials

 

Sharing Information

Facebook launched the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information Center to provide a central place for people to get the latest updates from trusted health authorities as well as resources and tips to stay healthy and support their family and community. This compliments the efforts being made on the platform to reduce the spread of mis-information relating to Covid-19.
