BB&T brings financial literacy to the Oak Cliff business community

Cultivating Header 

BB&T has partnered with the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce to develop a financial literacy series entitled, “Cultivating Success,” designed to take pre-existing businesses to the next level. Beginning Monday, Jan. 11, the curriculum will identify and meet the specific financial needs of local entrepreneurs over the course of a year by the way of workshops and one-on-one mentoring. The free monthly workshops will be held at the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce, starting at noon.

If you travel on I-30 into downtown, you can't miss the construction going on.  Known as the "Horseshoe Project", this effort is being managed by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and is scheduled to be completed in 2017. 

About the Area

Oak Cliff is a neighborhood of Dallas south of downtown.  Oak trees and the bluffs overlooking the Trinity River gave Oak Cliff its name.  It's best known for rolling hills, mature trees, spectacular views of downtown, and historic and culturally diverse neighborhoods such as Winnetka Heights and Kessler Park.
