Md. Hispanic Chamber gets part of Wells Fargo’s $100K COVID-19 relief grants

Wells Fargo & Company and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) delivered 70 emergency relief grants totaling $100,000 to America’s Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, including the Maryland chamber, which are leading in providing technical assistance to small businesses throughout the country.

Each year, the USHCC partners with Wells Fargo to open a competitive grant application for programs that help small businesses grow and support the Hispanic community, with a focus on growing Hispanic Business Enterprises. This year, with the overwhelming need of Hispanic Chambers throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico due to the economic impact of COVID-19, the USHCC expanded this program to provide support for more chambers and business owners through resources and technical assistance.

Chambers of Commerce provide valuable support to job creators and businesses. During this time especially, chamber employees are becoming go-to hubs for bilingual technical assistance for filling out applications for the Economic Injury Disaster Loans, the Paycheck Protection Program and other programs.
