Providing Relief for Black Businesses during COVID-19

Ford Motor Company and the Ford Motor Company Fund have partnered with the National Urban League to launch the Emergency Capital Access Program (ECAP).  ECAP is a programmatic initiative that seeks to provide immediate access to capital for Black business owners – an important but often overlooked pillar of the economy – who are currently at a competitive disadvantage for accessing government or foundation relief available due to COVID-19.

Meeting the short-term financial needs of microenterprises and small businesses in East Baton Rouge Parish.

CREATING SUSTAINABLE CHANGE FOR RACIAL EQUITY

Once equity becomes the goal, it can become the standard. When equity is the standard, we will see the change we deserve.
