We work to connect small businesses with the financial assistance they need to run their businesses. Especially during the pandemic, connecting our communities with financial assistance is more critical than ever. Business owners who have been affected by COVID can contact us for help applying to city and state opportunities, including loans and grants.
In particular, we are working with Empire State Development to ensure Asian immigrant business owners can access the $800 million of Small Business Pandemic Recovery funding being disbursed by New York State. We encourage Mandarin and Korean-speaking business owners to get in touch with our staff about this funding opportunity.
