DBP’s most recent estimates show that more than 70% of businesses in Downtown Brooklyn have closed due to the COVID-19 shutdown. Of our small businesses, very few have been able to avail themselves of government loans and grants. NYC’s economic recovery rests on the ability of small business to survive – this campaign will help make that happen.

We Need to Help the Businesses We Love,

Before They are Gone Forever.

The COVID-19 pandemic has decimated our community - especially the neighborhood businesses that we rely on. These are the businesses that fuel our daily lives — the ones that make Brooklyn, BROOKLYN.  Our local businesses are in trouble, and they need our support NOW to survive.

The COVID-19 Impact on Small Businesses

Thousands of our local businesses — entrepreneurs, minority/women and immigrant-owned businesses — have been shut out of many loan programs. This is why the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce designed this non-profit fund to provide vital support to neighborhood businesses that most need help.

"I am proud to support the Bring Back Brooklyn Fund. Brooklyn is all of us!"

- Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President

DONATE NOW - Your local small businesses are the heart of our great neighborhoods — help save them today. It's time for all of us to come together to keep our neighborhoods strong.

Make a Difference in Your Community

No-interest, community-driven loans to save local business.

We created the Bring Back Brooklyn Fund in response to COVID-19 when we saw how many of our local businesses were being shut out of government loans. Through our CDFI, Brooklyn Alliance Capital (BAC), we will provide no-interest, recovery loans of $500 - $10,000 to help local small businesses recover from COVID-19. 65% of the Bring Back Brooklyn loans will be made to minority and women-owned businesses.
