The Neighborhood 360° Fellows program pairs community organizers and planners with New York City community-based development organizations (CBDOs) to facilitate increased collaboration between local stakeholders around impactful economic development initiatives. Fellows will serve as on the ground resources connecting local businesses, jobseekers and CBDOs to NYC Department of Small Business Services’ programs. Additionally, fellows will participate in a series of supplemental seminars and excursions focused on professional development and commercial revitalization.

Each year, the Department of Small Business Services compiles a report on the revenues, expenses and impacts of NYC's Business Improvement Districts. This information is collected to monitor and communicate the impacts of BIDs across the City, as well as share the information with the BID community to better inform their decision making. The data summarized in the report linked below is drawn from the Fiscal Year 2014 Annual Report, provided by each BID to SBS.
