RogersEdge Business Improvement District

RogersEdge Business Improvement District We are a partnership that recruits, supports, and sustains a high quality business district on the far north side of Chicago’s lakefront. ROGERSEDGE Business Improvement Initiative is a collaboration between Loyola University Chicago, the Rogers Park Business Alliance, and the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce to recruit, support, and sustain a high quality business district on the far north side of Chicago’s lakefront.
(2)

The name is derived from the fact that our business district is at the edge of Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus, the edge of Edgewater, and the edge of Rogers Park. Because our customer base comes from both neighborhoods and the campus, we work together to promote and support the business district through planning, marketing, networking, and special events.

Please see the attached flyer regarding the Small Business Resiliency Loan Fund and the corresponding Spanish translation below. This fund is designed to assist small businesses that are experiencing a loss of revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will get through this together!
------------------------------------------------------------
La Alcaldesa Lori E. Lightfoot anunció un nuevo paquete de ayuda económica de $ 100 millones para apoyar las pequeñas empresas de Chicago que están experimentando una pérdida temporal de ingresos como resultado del virus COVID-19. El fondo de ayudas para apoyar empresas pequeñas por sus siglas en inglés (Chicago Small Business Resiliency Loan Fund) es una alianza de la ciudad, the Catalyst Fund, presidido por la Tesorera Melissa Conyears-Ervin, y otros patrocinadores privados. El nuevo fondo proporcionará más de $ 100 millones en préstamos a bajo interés por los siguientes meses para pequeños negocios que serán severamente impactados por esta crisis. Este fondo está dirigido especialmente a comunidades de bajos recursos que históricamente han sido afectadas por situaciones similares. El fondo tiene como énfasis minimizar las dificultades para aquellos empresas y sus empleados. El paquete está diseñado para proporcionar el alivio necesario de flujo de caja para los empresarios del vecindario.

Más de la mitad de los estadounidenses trabajan o son dueños de una pequeña empresa. De acuerdo a un estudio reciente, el promedio de una empresa pequeña en Chicago de efectivo disponible, es de solo tiene 28 días, y en muchos de los barrios del sur y oeste de Chicago, los negocios tienen aún una liquidez más estricta. En Englewood, por ejemplo, la mitad de los propietarios de pequeñas empresas solo tienen suficiente efectivo para operar durante cinco días o menos.

Support your local businesses. Virtual restaurant week in Edgewater.

The Edgewater restaurant community has been working hard to continue to provide the neighborhood with food options.
These are some of the most challenging times for businesses and Edgewater restaurants are focused on doing what they do best — delivering great food to great people every day.

From chefs to delivery drivers — as they maintain their operations and support their people, you can keep them delivering to a community that needs them right now.

Change up your eat-in routine with a delicious restaurant prepared meal. Takeout can be a great way to help out a neighbor as well.

Then share your experience online - every boost helps, and positive word of mouth can help drive other delivery orders their way. Plus boosting their reputations now only helps them when they reopen their dining rooms later.
