NYC Small Business Services
Business Improvement Districts

New York City is home to the nation's largest, most comprehensive network of Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) in the country. BIDs are a key public/private partnership in New York City and have helped revitalize neighborhoods and catalyze economic development throughout the City. The City's 72 BIDs annually invest more than $100 million worth of programs and services in neighborhoods across the five boroughs.

The NYC Department of Small Business Services is responsible for managing the City’s relationship with each BID and works to ensure BIDs carry out services efficiently by liaising with City agencies, promoting best practices and aggregating information about the programs, services and goals of each BID.

Please visit the NYC Business Improvement District Directory for contact information and specific programs and services of each BID in New York City.
