A Business Improvement District (BID) is a public/private partnership in which property and business owners elect to make a collective contribution to the maintenance, development and promotion of their commercial district. Funds to pay for BID programs and services are generated from a special assessment paid by the commercial property owners. New York City is home to seventy-two Business Improvement Districts managed by the NYC Department of Small Business Services. NYCs BIDS annually invest over $100 million worth of programs in services that revitalize neighborhoods and catalyze economic development. There are 76 of us –BIDs, that is–in New York City.
