SPS Community-Owned Businesses

Helping Our Own: NYU SPS Small Business Support

COVID-19 has shuttered businesses worldwide. We are pleased to announce a new initiative to support NYU SPS community-owned small businesses. Do you or your family own a small business that is still operating and has been affected by COVID-19?  To help your business and direct customers to your door, SPS wants to share your business information with the community. This page lists services or products and provides location and contact information.  

If you (or your family) own a small business and would like to be included on the website, please complete the short survey below.  For questions please email sps.studentaffairs@nyu.edu.

Disclaimer: NYU SPS has no affiliation with any of the businesses listed nor are we making any recommendations concerning these businesses.
