Congrats to 35 New NYCHApreneurs!

Congrats to 35 New NYCHApreneurs!

On November 28, NYCHA celebrated 35 residents who successfully completed the Food Business Pathways (FBP) program. Now prepared to launch or scale their food businesses, they join the program’s 167 previous participants as resident business owners creating delicious food for New Yorkers to enjoy. Since it started in 2015, FBP has empowered residents to launch their own businesses by providing them with business education, startup capital, and affordable space in which to build their businesses. The program is a collaboration between NYCHA’s Office of Resident Economic Empowerment & Sustainability (REES), NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS), Citi Community DevelopmentHot Bread KitchenStart Small Think Big, other kitchen incubators, and REES zone partners across the city
