The National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders has awarded a $10,000 grant to the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber, a nonprofit that works to advance Latinos in the business world.
The Hispanic Chamber is the largest of its kind in the Northwest and has 850 members who serve Oregon and Southwest Washington through individual assistance to Latinos and Latino-based small businesses. The nonprofit also gives scholarships to Latino students and produces an annual trade show.
The $10,000 grant will be used to expand the Hispanic Chamber's small business development program. The Hispanic Chamber's small business development program works mostly with Latino business owners primarily in Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Marion counties. These are the areas with the largest Latino population in Oregon.
The NALCAB includes more than 90 nonprofit economic development member organizations that serve ethnically and geographically diverse communities, particularly Latino communities.
