Thank you to the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Department’s Economic Development Administration for awarding Operation HOPE with a $1.2 million grant to support our work in Puerto Rico. It will help us to provide 300 new workshops that will empower entrepreneurs and small businesses to grow following Hurricanes Irma and Maria. We’ll also be able to bring impact to a designated Opportunity Zone in Puerto Rico. As I’ve said before, these zones will begin to attract real capital into neighborhoods. This grant allows us continue our work to empower inclusion and financial freedom.
