The Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation (WHEDco) is a community development nonprofit organization based in the South Bronx. WHEDco is partnering with the NYC Department of Small Business Services to evaluate the needs of Southern Boulevard businesses, shoppers, residents, and those who work along the corridor.

We are conducting this survey to learn more about the non-profit organizations in the Southern Boulevard Commercial Area (including Boston Rd, 174th St, Louis Niñe Blvd, and Westchester Ave) and the services you provide in order to better refer community members to them, as well as to explore the possibility of future partnership or collaboration.

If you have any questions, please contact econdev@whedco.org or 718.839.1197. To learn more about WHEDco and our commercial revitalization work, please visit whedco.org/retail.
