From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: Emergency Relief Workshop

This item will undoubtedly be of interest to a number of small business owners who have been impacted by hurricane Sandy. This upcoming Friday, November 9th, starting at 1:30 p.m. the folks at EWVIDCO, along with Councilmembers Diana Reyna and Steve Levin will be conducting an Emergency Relief Workshop. The above missive outline rather explicitly what attendees need to provide. This is a great opportunity for anyone who needs help negotiating the copious paperwork required to receive assistance and get his/her businesses back up and running. What’s more, it is totally free! Check it out!

Quicklinks: Resources For Small Businesses Impacted By Sandy & More

These resources have been brought to my attention by the fine folks at EWVIDCO (East Williamsburg Valley Industrial Development Corporation, for those of you who are not in the know). Via their Facebook page:

Please forward to any Greenpoint businesses impacted by Sandy

“NYC Dept. of Small Business Services has an Emergency Response Unit specifically to provide assistance for businesses that are forced to interrupt their operations due to “unavoidable disasters” such as Hurricane Sandy. This unit has helped businesses deal with a wide range of issues.

If your business is interrupted and you think you need assistance, call the Emergency Response Unit Hotline at 212-618-8810. OR send an email with a description of your issue and a way they can contact you to: BOT-ERU@SBS.NYC.GOV”

Done! Those who are in need (or are simply curious) can can get more information about applying for disaster assistance via FEMA by clicking here. Otherwise, this incredibly handy portal can not only help you determine if you qualify for help, but you can apply for aid there as well. Check ’em out!
