President Obama is deeply committed to securing the future prosperity of the African American community, whether through investing in underserved communities or closing education achievement gaps. In accordance with the Administration's vision, winning the future for African Americans means addressing the community's specific needs with the right resources. To bring economic relief and equal opportunity, the following list contains resources and websites we'd like to highlight--resources that promote job creation, increase access to higher education, and help out in healthcare coverage.
Spurring Jobs and Small Businesses: In these difficult economic times, reducing unemployment and a balanced approach to deficit reduction is at the top of our list. A key role to turning the economy around is investing in small businesses in underserved, low-income areas:
Providing Healthcare for Your Family: Getting proper medical coverage is especially important for families and seniors in financial need.
Student Loans and Higher Education: Learn more about how we're investing in education for youths and leaders of the future.
Urban Development: We also provide relief for families struggling to pay the rent or striving for a safer, violence-free environment for their kids to grow up in.
