For over forty years, the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has been the leading voice for Hispanic business owners in America. From its inception, the mission of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, has been to foster economic growth that creates and sustains prosperity for the benefit of the American people.

We know that when policy makers in Washington prioritize the rise of America’s small and minority business communities, our country’s wider economic outlook improves.

Here are a few of the public policy areas we advocate for:

Access to Capital

The USHCC encourages increased capital investment in small business. Budding innovative public and private partnerships are critical to the overall growth of Hispanic businesses.
