We know that Black, brown, and low-income communities have been hit especially hard by the COVID-19 crisis and this unprecedented economic downturn.

If we don’t do something to help, we’re going to see a huge hemorrhaging of small businesses and jobs.
That’s why today I’m joining @SenSchumer, @SenBooker, @SenKamalaHarris, and @RepGregoryMeeks to introduce the #NeighborhoodJobs Act – a new, $17.9 billion investment in minority and low-income communities to help them create jobs and weather this economic storm.
Lack of credit access is one of the leading barriers for businesses in minority communities, and it seriously inhibits economic opportunities.

Our bill will devote resources to community-based lenders to increase the flow of credit into underserved neighborhoods.
