The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce wants business owners to know they are ready to help after Ida devastated the city.
The chamber’s business recovery team headed to Courtelyou Road in Ditmas Park on Thursday and spoke to business owners to offer their assistance to Ida.
They say many companies in the region that were already working on tight budgets experienced floods and lost goods on Wednesday night.
The board cited Ida’s timing as particularly worrying as the pandemic has already decimated small businesses in Brooklyn. Anyone who was able to open up against all odds this year now faces another major hurdle.
Dina Rabiner of the Chamber of Commerce says they can help by connecting businesses to financial and other support through the NYC Small Business Resource Network.
“The belts are tightened and without access to more financial resources that is the key,” says Rabiner. “
If you are a Brooklyn business owner and need help after Ida, the Business Recovery Team wants you to be in touch.
