THE BRONX - Minority business owners in the Bronx are getting a boost. 

The Bronx Minority Business Center at SoBRO held its grand opening Monday, and will now be helping existing shop owners increase revenue, gain access to contracts, obtain grants and loan assistance, and receive legal services. 

The South Bronx Overall Development Corporation was able to open the center through a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce, which says that minority companies are the fastest growing sector in the country. 

SoBRO says its partnership with the federal government will help more minority companies keep their doors open and thrive in their communities.
