2012 MCC Small Business Recovery Fund

2012 MCC Small Business Recovery Fund

The Manhattan Chamber of Commerce Foundation is working with business partners to raise funds for small businesses throughout the city affected by Hurricane Sandy. Donations are being accepted and small grants will be given to businesses to help with rent, payroll, clean up, etc. Applications must be fully completed in order to be considered for a grant.

Please also note that there are no guarantees that we will be able to provide grants as our ability to distribute the funds depends on the amount of donations The Fund receives.
