The Finance, Banking & Business subcommittee has a new name! It is now called the Finance, Banking & Business subcommittee.
On Thursday, February 10th, the Finance, Banking & Business subcommittee met and discussed barriers for minority-owned small businesses in West Palm Beach, including language barriers. They reviewed existing programs that help with loans and financing and agreed that there was a need for more data in order to track racial disparities.
They also discussed the logistics of creating and distributing a survey to local small businesses, as part of a larger effort to obtain more data on racial disparities. Subcommittee members expressed interest in inviting small business owners (especially young business owners) to the next subcommittee meeting, so please help spread the word!
