In June of 2021, New York State announced an $800 million fund to help small businesses recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. AAF is working with Empire State Development to assist NYC’s Asian communities with accessing this funding. We encourage businesses who have experienced losses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic to contact us for information on the grant, help with the application, and requests for follow-up information on existing applications.
