Small Business Administration Seeks Help With Hurricane Relief Efforts

September 13, 2017

A note from the U.S. Small Business Administration following Hurricane Harvey and Irma:

As recovery efforts begin in Texas and Louisiana, it is clear the damage and devastation from Hurricane Harvey will certainly reach historic levels. Homes, businesses, and lives have been uprooted by the sheer force of nature, affecting millions of people. And right behind Harvey, we will be facing the aftermath related to Irma. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is one of the key federal government agency sources of money to help homeowners, renters, businesses, and nonprofit organizations recover from disasters.

While help has poured in from across the country, the road to recovery is going to be long. SBA is preparing to process an extraordinary number of disaster loan applications, and we have already hired hundreds of additional staff to help process these loans. However, demand for SBA assistance is expected to escalate quickly. To augment our reserves, SBA is reaching out to individuals and businesses who can support our staff if needed, including the following roles: lawyers, paralegals, and legal assistants.

Read the position description for the roles. Please note that the position description may be shared with any applicable individual, including recent graduates and possibly retirees who have interest.
