Managing Nonprofit City Capital Projects During COVID-19

When and where

Date and time




What’s Happening?

If you are a nonprofit planning for or currently undertaking a capital project, the COVID-19 crisis and PAUSE order in New York has undoubtedly impacted your plans, budgets and resources. While your capital project may not a top priority right now, it is important to know what resources, support and advocacy options are out there for your organization.

Join Hester Street, in collaboration with Nonprofit New York, for this informational webinar to discuss challenges and opportunities surrounding nonprofit capital projects at this time, whether you recently applied for City funding, are planning for renovations, are in the construction process, or anywhere in-between. We will cover issues and answer questions related to design + construction, safety, insurance, budgets + financing and ongoing policy efforts. We will also have representatives from Make the Road New York share their approach towards managing their capital project – a new Community Center in Queens – while undertaking critical pandemic relief and response efforts for their members.

About Hester Street:

Hester Street is an urban planning, design and development nonprofit based in the Lower East Side that offers planning, design, community development and real estate technical assistance to community-based organizations, governments and other agencies throughout New York City and New York state.

Please RSVP by Monday, May 18.
