In partnership with District 5 Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales, LiftFund, LaunchSA, and UTSA Small Business Development Center, WDC has setup the Westside Small Business Helpline.  This is a one-stop, bilingual helpline, designed to ensure small businesses have access to the advice and support they need to stay open and keep people in jobs amidst impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Callers can receive support on a variety of issues ranging from emergency funding, to landlord and tenant issues to best practices on reopening safely and where to get personal protective equipment (PPE). By partnering with other community organizations and lenders, the Westside Helpline will be able to connect callers with the best resources based on their situation and need. Follow up calls will be conducted to ensure business owners received assistance and issues resolved.

The Westside Small Business Helpline number is (210) 598-8482 and is accepting live calls during normal business hours.
