NCRC’s Small Business Teaming Center to Hold Inaugural Event

Washington, DC — On Tuesday, July 24, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition’s Small Business Teaming Center will hold an event to introduce the procurement community to the concept of small business teaming, and give small business owners the opportunity to network. NCRC’s Small Business Teaming Center puts together teams of small businesses with complementary capabilities to allow them to compete for large federal contracts they would not be able to win individually. The center is funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and managed by the National Community Reinvestment Coalition.

“Small business teaming is an innovative concept that will open up lucrative opportunities for small businesses. We are excited to be on the cutting edge, promoting and facilitating small business growth in a new way,” said NCRC President and CEO John Taylor.

The event will be attended by small business owners, corporate small business liaisons and representatives from government agencies, and will feature remarks from senior Small Business Administration officials.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at SunTrust Bank on 1445 New York Avenue NW, 9th Floor, Washington, DC. It is open to members of the press. For more information contact Eric Hersey at (202) 524-4880 or ehersey@ncrc.org.

In addition to its Business Teaming Center, NCRC is the only non-profit organization in the country that operates three MBDA Business Centers, with centers in Washington, D.C., New York, NY, and Houston, TX. NCRC also manages a Women’s Business Center sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration, and a small business development loan fund.

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.
