NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A collection of organizations and businesses have come together to assist Black-owned businesses recover from Hurricane Ida.

AT&T and Mastercard kicked off the Black Business Works Fund on Monday with a $200,000 donation.

The program will see $2,500 grants given to African-American businesses that suffered damage or lost business after the devastating storm.

Organizers say they’re trying to make the requirements for recipients as easy as possible.
