Small Business Support Resources

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the City of Dunkirk would like to provide our local businesses with as much support as possible. There are many non-profits, small business organizations, chambers, and local, state, and federal agencies working hard to help our small businesses. The City’s Planning and Development Department is ready to help point local businesses in the right direction in order to access funding and loan support during these trying times. 

Mayor Rosas stated, “I want to assure all businesses in the City of Dunkirk that I will do all that I can to assist them through these troubled times and I have directed our Development Department to reach out to our business community to see how we can assist them with meeting the eligibility criteria for different programs at the local, state, and federal level. We are in this together and we will come out of this a stronger community.”
