Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on March 8 that the City will provide relief for small businesses across the City seeing a reduction in revenue because of COVID-19.
The NYC Dept. of Small Business Services’ has opened the applications for grants for small businesses who are struggling in light of COVID-19 (applications for loans will open next week). We urge you to fill out the application now available online and note that there are financial documents you will need to gather. If you have any difficulties completing the application, please email or text Lauren Collins (917-538-5784) with the best way to contact you and one of the BID’s staff will get in touch with you to assist.
