Downtown Syracuse Business and Property Owners,
Every Wednesday for the past 25 weeks, we’ve shared the latest financial resources and business strategies with you, our Downtown Syracuse business community, as we all work to navigate challenges presented in the new COVID-19 economy.
We’ve worked with government leaders and industry experts to compile news and information related to state and local reopening requirements, health and safety protocols, technical assistance opportunities, financial opportunities, online sales platforms, and educational resources. We hope these tools have been helpful, and we encourage you to continue checking our Reopening Resources page at for updates. If you missed any of the Downtown Business Resources emails, a full list of topics and links is provided for your perusal below.
We know this spring and summer has been incredibly challenging for local businesses. As our Economic Development team continues to monitor the funding and regulatory environments, we’ll notify you through special “Business Alert” emails to keep you up-to-date on financial opportunities and operating requirements. Please keep an eye out for these special announcements, which will come directly from our Director of Business Development, Heather Schroeder.
In the meantime, reach out and tell us what you need. Whether it’s market research, downtown demographic information, real estate listings, local approvals, technical assistance, funding help, or an ear to help you brainstorm, our team is here to help. Email Heather ( to learn more.
Thank you!
