OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) – The Oakland Chamber of Commerce has set up what they call a resiliency relief program to help its members who have been hurt by the coronavirus crisis.
The program launched Wednesday and people can make donations to help businesses that are struggling to survive during the pandemic.
So far, the relief effort has received commitments of $30,000 to help mom and pop stores — and small businesses of color.
Applications are due next Wednesday, May 20, for businesses who need help with money.
Thought Congress approved funding, hundreds of local small Black owned businesses did not receive financial support.
