The SBS Neighborhood Development Division (NDD) helps ensure the success of commercial districts throughout New York City by working with organizations to invest in streetscape improvements, property development, and business attraction. Our goal is to ensure the vitality of the city's commercial districts by creating opportunities for small businesses and the communities they serve. We do this through working with Business Improvement Districts, facilitating the Avenue NYC Program, preparing community leaders through the Neighborhood Leadership Program, as well as workshops and technical assistance.
The CFY16 Avenue NYC application period is closed. We are currently reviewing all applications received by February 6, 2015 and will release funding decisions by May 2015.
