Digital.NYC has teamed up with the New York City Economic Development Corporation to provide the NYC tech startup community with up-to-date information and resources for support and relief during the COVID-19 crisis. Below you will find a curated list of resources to help you weather the pandemic, including key government relief program sites, trusted resource sites for startups and small businesses, employment and layoff services for impacted workers, funding opportunities, and more. This list will be regularly updated to ensure that the most recent information available is available to you.

We also want to hear from you! If you or your company are hosting an online event or meetup, doing something to help, or know of other resources to help the tech community, please reach out to [email protected] so we can share. We were built on the belief that the NYC tech community is stronger and better together. This has never been truer than it is today. We will get through this #TechTogether!
