Comcast Business and NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises Partner to Provide Grant to United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

PHILADELPHIA , May 21 /Businesswire/ - Comcast Business today announced it has partnered with NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises, the leading media company serving Hispanics, to provide a $50,000 grant to the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) -- America’s largest Hispanic business organization, representing over 4.37 million Hispanic-owned small and medium sized businesses. The grant will support Hispanic-owned businesses impacted by COVID-19.

  • “Comcast Business is committed to helping the Hispanic-owned business community stay connected and agile during this unprecedented time. Growing twice as fast as other businesses in the country and contributing thousands of new jobs to their local communities, Hispanic-owned businesses are helping fuel our economy,” said Bill Stemper, President, Comcast Business. “We’re proud to partner with our friends at NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises to extend our support to the Hispanic business community and our partners at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce during this time of need.”
  • “We are honored to be working hand-in-hand with Comcast and Telemundo, such important voices for our community, to make sure that our minority-owned small businesses have access to the bilingual resources they need to respond to the economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis,” said Ramiro A. Cavazos, USHCC President & CEO. “We will work diligently with Comcast and Telemundo to fight for these businesses and help advance the prosperity of U.S. Hispanics during these times.”
  • “Hispanic-owned businesses are the heart of our community, so assisting and guiding these business owners during these difficult times is an enormously important initiative for us,” said Christina Kolbjornsen, Senior Vice President of Corporate and External Affairs. “One in every four small businesses in the U.S. is Hispanic-owned and 75 percent of new businesses in the U.S. are created by Hispanics. These small businesses face the same challenges as large companies, yet they have a fraction of the resources. We are excited to partner with Comcast and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to offer these small businesses the support they deserve.”

In addition to the grant, NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises in partnership with USHCC, is providing resources and guidelines to businesses in the language of their choice, as well as tips on how to navigate the Small Business Debt Relief Program – the CARES Act, the program that provides immediate relief to small businesses with non-disaster SBA loans. This information, as well as other resources to guide business owners can be found on telemundo.com/nuestrosnegocios.

Comcast Business is enabling businesses of all sizes to stay online and connected during these unusual times, with access to free Xfinity hotspots, tools to manage a business from any device, anywhere, and a team of experts and engineers available 24/7.
