Chinatown Partnership & Chinatown BID Announce Sandy Relief Grants for Small Businesses

100% of money donated will go directly toward helping small businesses in the Chinatown BID service area

Chinatown Partnership, in collaboration with the Chinatown Business Improvement District (BID), announced a major fundraising initiative to provide grants to small businesses that were negatively impacted by Superstorm Sandy.

The size of the grants will ultimately be determined by the amount of funds that are raised. To date, the Chinatown Partnership and Chinatown BID have raised over $40,000 towards the “Chinatown Partnership – Sandy Relief Fund.”

To be eligible, businesses must be located in the Chinatown BID service area; must be open at least 1 year (or have a 5-year lease); must have 50 or fewer employees OR less than $1 million in annual revenue in 2011; must have been closed at least 5 days due to the storm/power outage/physical damage; must show demonstrable proof of loss of business; and must indicate intended use for the grant funds.

Grants can only be used to help businesses with short-term payroll; property and equipment repair; mortgage/loan payments; relocation costs for businesses that are unable to operate in their original location; and to replace damaged or loss product (i.e. perishable food that had to be discarded).  Continue reading...

Mayor Bloomberg Signs Approval of Chinatown BID





Chinatown leaders joined Mayor Bloomberg at City Hall on Sept 27 for the official signing of the bill to create a Chinatown BID(Business Improvement District) in New York City.

New York City now joins the ranks of 1800+ communities around the world who had seen improvement and success from their BID. A BID is a time-tested, time-proven tool to keep neighborhoods clean, become more competitive, attract more visitors and improve living conditions while helping local businesses.




September 21, 2011


After the City Council Finance Committee voted unanimously 16 - 0 in support of the Chinatown BID, the full New York City Council also gave its unanimous support with a 50 - 0 vote!







Lower Manhattan editorials support the Chinatown BID!:

With the N.Y.C. Council soon to vote on whether or not to approve the formation of the Chinatown Business Improvement District, we would like to register our strong support for a ‘yes’ vote on the B.I.D.

We believe that the Chinatown B.I.D. will lead to an improved quality of life for the district’s businesses and residents, as well as tourists, who frequently go out of their way to travel to a neighborhood that has an identity unlike any other. Read More

THE FUTURE OF CHINATOWN IS IN YOUR HANDS

The community is just weeks away from creation of a District Management Association responsive to the neighborhood's needs.

  • We keep the $1,900,000 million allocated post 9/11 for Chinatown in Chinatown.

  • Small businesses get a voice.  A district management association can improve communication with government agencies

  • We can attract more visitors to the neighborhood with clean streets.  A conservative estimate of 5,000,000 to 7,000,000 visitors expected to visit Lower Manhattan annually.  Read more

 Chinatown community leaders brave the elments on their way to January 26th City Planning Commission to support for the BID  (Crain's March 2, 2011)



With the support of grants, some very effective programs have been implemented on behalf of the Chinatown community. These include Clean Streets, the first sustained effort to keep the neighborhood clean, and world-class events like Taste of ChinatownSM, which attract visitors, and revenue, from around the world.

With funding for these programs running out by 2010, and with previous attempts to sustain similar programs unsuccessful, Chinatown has reached a fork in the road.

Our hard work over the past four years has proven that Chinatown is capable of helping itself.  The BID is a time-tested method that will make current improvements permanent and ensure the future of this historic neighborhood.

When considering a BID for Chinatown, remember that change is inevitable, but it can be managed. Remember that all choices have costs, benefits and tradeoffs.
