In wake of the tragic turn of events in Ferguson, The St. Louis Regional Business Council (RBC) has organized an immediate business response to support small business owners in the community.

The Reinvest North County Fund has been established to provide immediate relief to small business owners hurt by the tragedy in Ferguson. The fund will also provide school districts with appropriate resources to show their children how important school is, particularly in times of distress. Those wishing to apply for funding should fill out the very short and simple form on NCI’s website at www.NorthStLouisCounty.com.Applications will be accepted beginning Monday, August 18.
