This webinar will share results from a qualitative analysis of LISC NYC’s Commercial Corridor Challenge, a partnership of LISC NYC, Citi, and the New York City Department of Small Business Services (SBS) designed to strengthen and revitalize the streets, small businesses, and community-based organizations that anchor New York City neighborhoods. Panelists include the partners who collaborated to support small businesses in commercial corridors in four New York City neighborhoods devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn: Washington Heights in Manhattan, Morris Heights and Norwood in The Bronx, and Jackson Heights in Queens.
The intended audience includes government agencies, funders, corporate partners, elected officials, nonprofit organizations, economic development agencies, Business Improvement Districts, community-based organizations and researchers interested in learning about community-based strategies to support the equitable recovery of small, BIPOC-owned businesses impacted by the pandemic.
