“Queens was the epicenter of the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic and the virus had a devastating impact on our small businesses. In addition to months of lost revenue, business owners now have to take on additional expenses to keep their employees and customers safe,” said Tom Grech, President and CEO of the Queens Chamber of Commerce. “New York-Presbyterian Queens stepped up at the height of the pandemic to keep Queens safe and save lives. We are grateful that they are stepping up again to help our small businesses and are thankful for their partnership in this important initiative.”
Under the program, small businesses will receive grants in amounts ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 to purchase PPE and IPC measures, such as masks, gloves, sanitizer, face shields, sanitizing services, additional furniture for outdoor dining, temperature scanners, goggles, Plexiglas, and outfitting of interior to accommodate social distancing. The program will link grantees with local vendors to purchase products and services, the majority of which will be minority- and women-owned businesses.
