"We are delighted to provide this much-needed financial assistance to the City's small businesses that are struggling during the pandemic - they are the backbone of our local economy. It is critically important that we continue to assist our small businesses as we reemerge from the economic downturn and put Yonkers back to business," saidMike Spano, Mayor and Chairman, Yonkers IDA.
The Yonkers Business Assistance Program, funded by the Yonkers Industrial Development Agency (YIDA) and Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), managed by the City's Planning and Development department, is divided into two categories based on funding and business size. Grants of up to $10,000 are awarded to businesses with five employees or less, and a combination of grants and loans up to $25,000 are awarded to businesses with up to 50 employees.
