Merchant Relief Resources and Programs

The Mayor’s Office announced assistance programs to support very small businesses impacted by COVID-19 including employee retention grants and no-interest loans.

This program is available to New York City businesses with one to four employees that can demonstrate at least a 25% decrease in revenue as a result of COVID-19. Eligible businesses will receive a grant covering up to 40% of their payroll for two months. Businesses can access up to $27,000. Apply for the program here.

Businesses with fewer than 100 employees who are seeing a decrease in revenue of 25% or more will be eligible for zero-interest loans up to $75,000 to help mitigate losses in profit.
