Business Support from NYCEDC
The NYC Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is working alongside SBS and other City agencies to help support businesses in NYC through this difficult economic time.
A collaboration with SBS, Partnership for NY, Peterson Foundation and Five Borough Chambers of Commerce offering personalized guidance and recovery help to businesses. You will find assistance in matters of technology, real estate, legal and accounting services, procurement opportunities, marketing, sources of loans and grants, and more.
NYCEDC, and other City agencies, are interested in a deeper understanding of post-COVID return to office patterns to gauge the pace and health of New York City's economic recovery and implications for long-term planning.
To that end, NYCEDC has developed a two-minute survey for businesses to share the number of employees that were in in the office, working remotely, or a mix both pre-COVID and over the last week. The survey will be shared every couple of weeks to capture data and changes to occupancy over time.
No information on individual companies will be released. If you have any questions about the survey, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This initiative connects restaurants to pro bono design services to help improve their outdoor dining space. The Design Corps: Small Business Recovery Network will help restaurants adapt to safety guidelines and ensure compliance. The Design Corps website connects restaurant owners to volunteer design professionals to help maximize their use of space and create a safe dining experience.
Restaurant owners and design professionals who are interested in participating can go to nycxdesign.com/design-corps to register and self-connect to discuss the specific needs of the space.
