BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Lexington Market, along with the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and other financial groups are partnering together to create the $1 million Lexington Market Accelerator Fund.
The money will fill the need for small business owners, especially minority owners, who traditionally face barriers to accessing capital.
The loans range from $10,000 to $150,000 and are meant for the businesses and owners who will be part of the new market.

Coronavirus News: 4 dogs need loving home after owners die of COVID-19
LONG ISLAND (WABC) -- There is an urgent search to help find a new home for four dogs on Long Island after their owners died from COVID-19.
The Nassau County SPCA hopes to keep Oliver, Winston, Isabelle and Izzy all together.
The crew consists of two black labs, a boy and a girl, ages 5 and 6, a possible female Chihuahua mix that is 6 and a 5-year-old male boxer.
The dogs' owner was hospitalized with coronavirus while her father, who was also battling the virus himself, was home caring for the dogs.
However, the day-to-day care for the dogs became too much for him.

Skipper, a newborn Aussie- border collie mix, is being called a "miracle."
The Nassau County SPCA took them in so he could focus on getting better and help his daughter recover.
The rescue organization assured him that all four dogs would be there waiting for him when his daughter got released from the hospital.
One day after they took the dogs in, their owner's dad was hospitalized and died a few days later.
"We were all so hopeful the daughter would recover and she would have her babies to come home to," officials with Nassau County SPCA said. "Unfortunately that reunion will never happen as Oliver, Winston, Isabel and Izzy lost their mom this past week. They've lost everything."
While it is a heartbreaking story, the organization said they are determined to keep the dogs' tails wagging and help them find a new home.
