Small businesses are the bedrock of the U.S. economic ecosystem and are often the entry point for immigrants building new lives. The COVID-19 pandemic and recent civil unrest in America have dealt crippling blows to many small businesses, with minority communities bearing a disproportionate share of the impact.
Each organization will facilitate the distribution of $7,500 per business beginning in July, with applications open from March 22nd. In addition to capital, the initiative will also provide access to information, educational content, and other assets to help safeguard continuity during and after the COVID-19 crisis.
“AABDC has long supported the spirit of entrepreneurism and business excellence in the Asian American community,” said John Wang, founder and president at AABDC. “We have also championed the value of cross-cultural collaboration, and believe in actions that support other communities so that we can all progress together. In these difficult days, it’s more important than ever to promote unity, and Hennessy’s Unfinished Business aptly describes the hard work ahead for society to support each other and to move past differences and divisions.”
The eligible expenses for which the grants can be applied include payroll and operating expenses, rent, mortgage payments, and utility bills.
