So proud of Atlantic Avenue BID & PlanningCorps

Can't help it, I'm proud of PlanningCorps helping Atlantic Avenue BID with its NYC Small Business Services BID Challenge grant submission. AABID won the full award amount, $75,000! Read more about it here. Since the BID only launched in April 2012, and had a staff of one, the executive director, I felt like this project really made the point that small community-based organizations benefit from the collective capacity of volunteer planners. The snap above is from the awards ceremony that I was thrilled to attend back in November 2012, where Josef Szende accepted the award from Deputy Mayor Robert Steele and NYC SBS Commissioner Rob Walsh. Kudos!
