COVID-19 SMALL BUSINESS RESILIENCY FUND

 

When an unforeseen event occurs that negatively impacts small businesses like COVID-19, the Invest In Neighborhoods Division of OEWD works with individual businesses to provide support and resources they may need to get them through this difficult time. Because of the disruptions that COVID-19 has created for our small business community, the COVID-19 Small Business Resiliency Fund was created. It allows impacted small business owners to access up to $10,000 for employee salaries and rent. This program is administered in partnership with Northeast Community Federal Credit Union

 

OEWD also works closely with other city departments to coordinate and connect recovery response between impacted businesses and City departments. View our COVID-19 Business & Employee Assistance Guide.

  1. Have at least 1 employee and no more than 5 employees
  2. Demonstrate a loss of revenue of 25% or more
  3. Have less than $2,500,000 in gross receipts
