Small businesses owned by people of color were disproportionately impacted by COVID.

In recognition of this, the Citi Foundation awarded $25 million in small business technical assistance to 50 community organizations. LSSNY is pleased to be among them, receiving $500,000 in unrestricted funding to scale our work serving small businesses owned by people of color.

This grant supports our work with home-based family childcare providers who deliver quality care for children in New York City.
