Register Now

Confronted with a rapid decline in sales and revenue, small businesses need immediate access to financial assistance to cover rent, payroll, inventory and other expenses. Federal, state and local governments and a few private sector actors have been rolling out support for small business in the form of loans, grants and technical assistance. Locating and assessing these resources is a labor-intensive task at a moment when time is of the essence. In this webinar, NCRC’s Equivico will provide guidance on locating COVID-19 resources and help businesses gain clarity about available options. Small business owners, counselors, and advocates are encouraged to attend.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
