Small businesses and micro-enterprises are invited to apply for a “Rebound New Rochelle” grant through the City’s new online portal, with funds available for rent, staffing, working capital or other critical needs. Additionally, business guidance to help manage those funds efficiently will be available through the RXR Realty Volunteer Portal and through The Acceleration Project (TAP).
Rebound New Rochelle will also provide tenant based rental assistance for families who have been hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak. Eligible applicants should have household incomes, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, of less than 50 percent of the Area Median Income, have been laid off or furloughed from their job, and be unable to pay their rent as a result of the ongoing public health crisis.

By providing meaningful assistance to businesses and individuals, we can accelerate our local recovery and position our entire city for success in a post-COVID environment. The Rebound program reflects New Rochelle’s strong commitment to inclusive, equitable prosperity from which all of us can benefit.
