BRING BACK BROOKLYN
Brooklyn has never seen a crisis like this before. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone, decimating our entire community - especially the neighborhood businesses that we rely on. These are the businesses that fuel our daily lives — the ones that make Brooklyn, BROOKLYN — a world renowned expression of craft, diversity, food, design, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Our local businesses are in trouble, and they need our support NOW to survive. . . before they are gone forever.
Community-Driven. No Interest. Recovery Loan Program
With 50% of Cortelyou Road businesses closed, and many others operating at reduced capacity or pivoting to a new business model we need community support more than ever to help Cortelyou Road remain a vital commercial corridor.
DONATE NOW - along with local corporations, banks, government AND Brooklynites. Your local small businesses are the heart of our great neighborhoods — help save them today.
About the Fund
The Fund was carefully designed for small businesses that have been shut out of other loan programs with 65% earmarked for Minority and/or Women-owned business enterprises. The Bring Back Brooklyn Fund will offer no-interest, recovery loans between $500 and $30,000. Your donation will help 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.
To amplify the impact of your donation, funds will be redistributed to other small businesses once the loans are paid back. This way, more businesses can get the help they so desperately need.
