Economic Development

With a focus on Central Brooklyn and Canarsie, we facilitate neighborhood revitalization efforts and create long term economic stability.

Our economic development team provides:

  • Technical and planning assistance to small businesses
  • Development of merchant associations on secondary commercial corridors
  • Retail attraction strategies to address commercial vacancies and generate employment
  • Assistance to communities and businesses with streetscape improvements and façade renovations

Through these and other innovative programs we foster equitable and sustainable community development in our neighborhoods.
