SBS Risk Assessment & Grant Program for Businesses Affected by Superstorm Sandy

When: Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Where: Red Hook, Brooklyn

Was your small business impacted by Superstorm Sandy? If so, you may be eligible for an on-site, one-on-one risk assessment through the NYC Department of Small Business Services. Their team of experts will come to your place of business to:

1. Review your physical space, operations, and insurance coverage
2. Make recommendations and provide you with a customized report on how you can be better prepared for future business interruptions

Following the assessment, you can receive a grant of up to $3,000 to buy items and equipment recommended for your business, such as a wireless Point-of-Sale system, fireproof storage containers, and portable generators. To qualify:

• Your small business needs to have been registered and in operation at the time of the storm in October 2012
• Your business must have been impacted by flooding or power outage as a result of the storm
• Your business must still be located in the Sandy flood or power outage zone
