The Town of Greenburgh seeks to assist the local business community to help with challenges faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Locally and prior to COVID-19, the Town, through the Department of Community Development and Conservation, Office of the Assessor, and Building Department, with support and direct involvement of the Town Board, have coordinated with a local Retail Vacancy/Planning Focus Group to discuss matters relating to economic development.
Since COVID-19 the Town has convened with this group (comprised business owners/commercial property managers/residents/real estate professionals) to better understand how to be of assistance now, and in the coming weeks, months and future for the local business community; to understand concerns, listen to ideas, and create strategies to take to County and State agencies/representatives.
Below and attached please find a variety of information related to relief-based programs, grants and resources that have been brought to the attention of the Town, from the local Greenburgh-based focus group, neighboring municipalities, and local and regional representatives and agencies:

The attached guide should be distributed freely to small small businesses in our communities. I belong to the and am a mentor with Westchester County SCORE chapter. Our chapter provides free of charge mentoring to small business owners. We are functioning throughout this stressful period by only providing virtual (telephone and video) assistance. Normally we also most frequently have face to face meetings either at one of our many Westchester County locations or at our SCORE client’s business location.
We have several mentors available with a broad range of experience in operating both services for sale and products for sale business.

SBA has posted the interim final rule for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), and 7a participating lenders are now able to accept PPP applications. Attached is a fact sheet for borrowers, a copy of the loan application, and an overview of PPP, along with a copy of the regulation itself. The following information came directly from SBA. ***NOTE: Whereas farmers were NOT eligible for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan, SBA advises us that they ARE eligible for PPP.
FINDING A LENDER:
Borrowers may identify an eligible PPP lender by zip code at this page: www.sba.gov/paycheckprotection/find. Not all eligible lenders may be prepared to accept PPP applications, yet. More lenders will be added as eligible entities are onboarded. Please note, this search tool only lists the bank HQ addresses. Large multi-branch entities may not appear in the tool. I’ve attached a list of current, as of 4/3, eligible SBA lenders that the administration shared with us but do not have any other information about the lenders who will definitively take part in PPP.
HELP WITH APPLICATION:
SBA’s network of resource partners stands ready to assist businesses with PPP. You may visit www.sba.gov/local-assistance to find the nearest SBA partner or SBA office. The NYS Small Business Development Center has advisors statewide available to provide remote assistance. Please visit www.nyssbdc.org to make an online request for counseling.
