QUEENS, NY – Queens Borough President Donovan Richards and New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) President and CEO James Patchett, joined by area elected officials and other community partners, will tour Jackson Heights’ commercial corridor on Thursday, Jan. 28 to visit with local small business owners and encourage them to apply for funding through the recently announced Queens Small Business Grant program.

Launched earlier this month by Borough President Richards and NYCEDC, the Queens Small Business Grant program — made possible by a $17.5 million donation courtesy of New York Mets owner Steve Cohen — provides qualifying small businesses and vendors impacted by COVID-19 with up to $20,000 in funding to support operational expenses. For more information about the program, visit www.edc.nyc/program/queens-small-business-grants-program or www.queensbp.org/smallbusinessgrant
