The program will provide $5,000 grants to more than 400 small Black business owners to help them meet their needs. Eligible Black Business owners can apply for the grants between now and September 22.
The coalition, a multi-year initiative launched by the U.S. Chamber Foundation and American Express in September 2020, supports the long-term success of small Black businesses. The program is also the first grant collaboration between the nation’s four major Black chambers: the National Black Chamber of Commerce, the National Business League, the U.S. Black Chambers, Inc., and Walker’s Legacy. Since its inception, AIG Foundation, Altice USA, ADP, and the S&P Global Foundation have joined the effort.
