WASHINGTON DC — The U.S. Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) today announced the Mid-South Minority Business Council as a grant recipient to operate a MBDA Business Center in Memphis.

The federal funding ($285,400) will be distributed annually during a five-year period with a start date of April 1, 2016.

The grant program is designed to help minority-owned firms across the nation create jobs, develop their business, and compete in the global economy.

A key component of MBDA’s Business Center Network is providing minority firms with access to technical expertise and resources to grow their businesses.

According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2012 Survey of Business Owners, minority-owned firms in the United States increased from 5.8 million in 2007 to 8 million in 2012, and employed 7.2 million people in 2012.

In Tennessee, there are 105,234 minority-owned firms, that contribute more than $14.5 million annually in economic output. These firms employ more than 79,000 local residents.

Since 2009, MBDA Business Centers have assisted minority firms with gaining access to more than $31 billion in capital and contracts, while creating and retaining nearly 142,000 jobs.
