About the SBS Neighborhood Development Division (NDD)

The Department of Small Business Services (SBS) has supported the creation and growth of non-profit economic development organizations since the 1970s. 

Core Services
NDD provides several core services to help local economic development corporations serve their communities:
  • Business Improvement District (BID) administration – From helping retail corridors come together to form a BID, to providing established BIDs with assistance and oversight, NDD makes it possible for BIDs to thrive in NYC. 
  • Avenue NYC Program – Avenue NYC is a funding program designed to help organizations such as LDCs, merchant associations, and BIDs revitalize low- to moderate-income communities.
  • Workshops & Technical Assistance – NDD also offers various capacity building initiatives to help local economic development organizations address common issues. From programs designed to help fill vacant storefronts, to workshops and training, NDD helps neighborhood development organizations do more for New York City.
