The pandemic has brought unprecedented hardship for small businesses, and it has disproportionately impacted the Black small business community. That’s why the U.S. Black Chambers (USBC) is partnering with the Coalition to Back Black Businesses—a multi-year initiative to support Black small business owners in their recovery.
Over the next four years, the initiative will provide $10 million in grants, leadership development and business mentoring and other development opportunities to empower Black-owned small businesses in U.S. communities that have long been struggling with economic growth. USBC is proud to be a part of the Coalition to Back Black Businesses and we hope these grants can help the Black business community begin to emerge from this crisis stronger than ever.
The grant program is administered by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Black Chambers, Inc., American Express, the National Black Chamber of Commerce, National Business League, and Walker’s Legacy.
