Citizen’s Committee for New York City Neighborhood Business Grants
Grants up to $10,000 will fill gaps in funding by prioritizing businesses owned by people of color, immigrants, and women. While small businesses have kept their doors open, there is a significant need for assistance to fund business continuity. This period of recovery is a pivotal point to keep going. Proposals that focus on both physical and human infrastructure will be prioritized (technical system upgrades, location alterations, hiring support, marketing, training, PPE, etc.).
