Having strong local partners is key to implementing successful commercial revitalization initiatives. Therefore, in addition to support provided to Business Improvement Districts and critical funding provided through Avenue NYC, NDD offers community-based organizations a broad range of trainings and services aimed at building each organizations' capacity.
NDD offers website development support to organizations to promote their services, as well as those of businesses in the community. Selected organizations receive a professionally-designed website as well as a series of trainings on how to manage and update website content. Since 2010, NDD has created approximately 40 websites promoting retail corridors across the City.
A low commercial vacancy rate and a diverse retail mix are vital components of any successful commercial corridor. NDD provides consulting services, technical assistance, and training on how to recruit retail businesses to eligible neighborhood organizations to fill vacancies and promote a healthy retail mix.
