Open Thread: Don’t Forget About Our One-On-One Recovery Workshop On Wednesday!

Posted By Ned Berke On December 10, 2012 @ 4:00 pm In Events | 3 Comments

Just a reminder that we’ve expanded our business recovery workshop to include more agencies and also have someone on hand to help with residential concerns.

This week’s event will take place Wednesday, December 12, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Cherry Hill Market (1901 Emmons Avenue, in the Lundy’s Building).

The event is again sponsored by Sheepshead Bites, Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz and the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce.

The one-on-one workshop features experts from the Department of Small Business Services, the Small Business Administration, the New York City Economic Development Corporation, and FEMA.

For businesses, they’ll be helping fill out loan applications, filing appeals, or figuring out next steps. The NYCEDC will will consult with business owners to determine additional needed programs from the city, and help owners with any permit or regulatory challenges.

Finally, we’re also bringing in FEMA representatives to help residents with their own next steps.

We may also have Con Edison reps on hand to expedite service reinstatements, so if you lack power, come and get on their radar!

And keep in mind that many of the programs have a December 31 deadline – so don’t delay! Come to our workshop!

To help speed things up, we recommend you bring the following, though it’s not a requirement:

  • 2011 Business taxes returns
  • Copy of ID
  • FEMA pin number
  • A voided check
  • Credit report
  • Copy of your lease
  • Any forms, paperwork or documentation you may already have relating to recovery resources

None of the above are necessary, and the good folks here can get you on your way if you’re missing any of them – but it will make for a faster, simpler process.
