The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce has created the Bring Back Brooklyn Fund to help small businesses that have been shut out of traditional loan programs - with 65% earmarked for Minority and/or Women-owned businesses.
At least 84% of Brooklyn businesses that applied for loans from the federal government’s coronavirus stimulus package have not received funding.
Brooklyn’s economy has been one of the hardest hit- it is projected that 35% of our 63,000 small businesses may never reopen.We need to act now, before our small businesses are gone forever… Watch their stories here.
That’s why the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce created the Bring Back Brooklyn Fund — a community-driven, small business no-interest loan program, with 65% earmarked for Minority and/or Women-owned Business Enterprises (groups that have been shut out of most loan opportunities). Loans will help small businesses pay their bills, clean and sanitize their shops, hire staff, pay vendors, and more. These resources will help our small businesses survive the pandemic, protect jobs, and sustain our neighborhoods.
We need everyone to pitch in to bring back Brooklyn.
