The East Village is still feeling the impact of the 2nd Avenue explosion that left many neighborhood businesses in the lurch. There’s been significant fundraising and crowdsourcing to get these community favorites back on their feet. Herewith, another way for these places to financially rebuild.
The Lower East Side BID, Community Board 3 and local elected officials have been working with both public and private partners to raise such funds.
Financial assistance is available for eligible businesses, but application materials are due today. The deadline was extended to provide more businesses the opportunity to submit for help. The powers that be have stated that applicants will be contacted individually to provide additional supporting information, and grants are expected to be distributed by the end of the month.
Eligible businesses include establishments within the immediate impact zone. Applicants can contact the LES BID at 212-226-9010 for more information, or download an application at eastvillagerelief.nyc.
