Interactive Orientation

The ETP Economic Development Unit (EDU) can provide live orientations for potential contractors.  Held as a Zoom webinar, we deliver a basic program overview emphasizing the guidelines for the program and the ETP contracting process.  Sessions are normally scheduled on Tuesdays, starting at 11:00 am Pacific Time. Sessions may last from 30 to 45 minutes. Click on the link for the session you wish to attend. A pre-formatted email for that session will pop up.  Send the email including your name, company name, and contact phone, and a response will be sent to you, confirming your request.  

SEED GRANT PROPOSAL WEBINARS  SEED grants will support the entrepreneurship of immigrants and limited English proficient individuals, regardless of their immigration status, through the provision of micro-grants, training, outreach, and technical assistance to help them launch or sustain a small business aimed at addressing a social problem or meeting a community need.  To foster business innovation and equity, inclusion, and social responsibility, SEED will also include a demonstration project to support the creation and sustainability of worker-owned businesses and cooperatives.

This grant is open to non-profit Community Based Organizations (CBOs) to seek funding to administer SEED.  The deadline to submit a proposal is March 3, 2021 (3 PM PST).  Please refer to the ETP GRANTS page for more information and the SFP process. 

All meetings are subject to change or cancellation. Additional sessions may be added based on demand.  Contact the Economic Development Unit (916) 327-5258. Email
