Business Recovery Zone Initiative

In November of 2012, Mayor Bloomberg announced the Business Recovery Zone Initiative as a means for the City to help businesses most impacted by Hurricane Sandy reopen. For the last year, NDD staff has overseen the Southern Queens Zone, and worked to connect businesses in Howard Beach, Broad Channel, and the Rockaway Peninsula to both financial and non-financial recovery resources. Furthermore, through extensive canvassing and merchant meetings, NDD staff was able to assess business needs and help the City strategize about how best to address these needs.
