Downtown Alliance Offers Grants to Essential Small Businesses
The Alliance for Downtown New York launched the Small Business Rental Assistance Grant program to offer immediate help to storefront businesses currently providing vital services to residents and essential workers in Lower Manhattan during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With support from Brookfield Properties, Silverstein Properties and The Howard Hughes Corporation, the Downtown Alliance’s Small Business Rental Assistance Grant will give Lower Manhattan’s small businesses access to $800,000 in grants. The individual grants will offer $10,000 each to small businesses as a single direct payment to be applied to April or May rent.
The Small Business Rental Assistance Grant is part of a continuing effort by the Alliance to support businesses that are being adversely impacted by the spread of COVID-19. The Alliance says efforts will continue throughout the recovery phase, with dedicated marketing programs and initiatives to help turn the lights back on across the neighborhood.
