The Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce has announced a partnership with Comcast and the City of Tacoma for the Thrive Tacoma Business Fund.

The new resource provides $150,000 of direct financial support to BIPOC and women-owned small businesses based in Tacoma, a release said.

“The point of this fund is to see small businesses recover, survive, and thrive in the face of challenges dealt by the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to affect many local businesses,” the release said.

The new partnership falls under Comcast’s $1 billion Project UP Initiative, which looks to advance digital equity and other opportunities to tens of millions of people across the next decade, the release said.
