The launch established the organization as Kentucky’s only black chamber of commerce consisting of 10 members, and since the launch, the chamber has made significant gains in terms of the number of entrepreneurs and small business owners it has helped start and grow their businesses. Today, the chamber has expanded into a national organization with over 200 members expanding across fourteen states. The chamber is also become a certified Community Development Entity (CDE) under The U.S. Department of Treasury. The chamber has also built collaborative partnerships with SCORE Louisville; Louisville Better Business Bureau; The U.S. Black Chamber of Commerce Inc.; Chase Bank’s Advancing Black Pathways Program; and it launched The Kentucky CDE CDFI Partnership with Community Ventures Inc. The chamber's latest accomplishment is the launch of the NOIRBBC Homebuyer Education Program & NOIRBCC eHome America HUD Certified Homebuyer Course to move more black and brown families towards homeownership.
Because of the social unrest in Louisville and across America due to the killings of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, the chamber was compelled to identify a pathway forward for Black Americas, that would truly create economic and social change, and in doing so, the chamber reviewed a Louisville project called Resilience to identify core economic and social pillars specific to black communities that would create that change. After extensive research and review, the chamber identified TEN pillars it would create national programming around to help “Move Black America Forward”. The first FOUR pillars are centered around business programming to assist Black Entrepreneurs-Start; Small Businesses-Grow; Midsize Businesses-Sustain; and Corporate Black Professionals-Rise. The second SIX pillars are centered around Community programming and Black Community Trauma; Black Teen Higher Professional Career Attainment; Apprenticeship and Job Training for Non-College-Bound Black Teens; Welfare Reform; University Black Business Clubs & Black Talent Job Placement; and Homeownership for Black and Brown Families, Section 8 Families, Veterans, and Millennials which is key to breaking the cycle of poverty through building generational wealth.
