Business SundayAs we close out National African American History Month, the Commerce Department is proud to announce our participation in the launch of Business Sunday. This initiative is focused on connecting current and future business leaders from congregations and communities around the country with the federal resources they need to start and grow their companies. As a reflection of the President’s commitment to job creation and economic opportunity for all Americans, Business Sunday will help people access valuable technical assistance, grant information and other resources from the Minority Business Development Agency, BusinessUSA and the Small Business Administration.

Throughout his career, President Obama has continually worked to promote community development and expand access to opportunity. To this end, the President recently announced “My Brother’s Keeper,” a new White House initiative to empower boys and young men of color. The Commerce Department shares this commitment and, through Business Sunday and other programs, will work closely with faith-based and other community leaders to ensure they are equipped to help local businesses succeed.

The initial Business Sunday program will take place on Sunday, March 30, 2014 following services at the 19th Street Baptist Church in Washington, DC.
