Employment with SBA's Office of Disaster Assistance

The U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is the Federal Government's primary source of funds for homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes, and private, non-profit organizations throughout the United States, American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Puerto Rico, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the U. S. Virgin Islands who have suffered property damage in a disaster. SBA makes these low-interest, long-term disaster loans to help pay for repairs to damaged real estate, personal property, and businesses.

Because disasters are unpredictable, the number of SBA employees needed to respond varies greatly. To accomplish our mission of helping disaster victims in floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, wildfires, and other disasters, SBA hires most staff on a temporary, full-time appointment that can last anywhere from one month to several years, depending on the number and severity of disasters and the resulting workload.

Substantial paid overtime, up to seven days a week and twelve to fourteen hours a day, may be required without flexibility in scheduling such overtime. Also, substantial travel to disaster areas is required. Travel assignments are expected to involve both extended duration and extensive frequency with very short notice at any time of the year. Employees must report for duty whenever assigned within 48 hours.

If you are interested in seeking temporary full-time employment, please consider joining the SBA Disaster Program.
