Historically underinvested communities across urban and rural America are facing enormous economic challenges from the fallout of COVID-19. Small businesses, many who have had to shut down temporarily, are at serious risk of closing permanently. These enterprises are the lifeblood of communities, providing critical goods and services as well as jobs to locals.
