The Community Needs Your Insight To Help Steer Billions In JFK Upgrades

By Danielle Douglas, Queens Connection Team Activist and Southeast Queens Scoop Community Writer.

As I shared in the last post, a major aspect of the JFK Redevelopment Project is a thirty percent (30%) utilization of Minority Women Business Enterprises (MWBEs.) More specifically, there will be an emphasis on providing contract opportunities to local business owners of Southeast Queens.
Although, the Port Authority is in the embryonic stage of identifying services that can be provided  to the Southeast Queens small business community, an overview of some of the initiatives the Port Authority would like to implement was provided during the Community meetings. 

What do you need?

The MWBE Coalition Group of the Queens Connection Team has developed a survey to identify who are the small businesses in the community and what are the key challenges they are facing.  We would like to hear from you in regards to what you need to start and grow your business. 

You are a stakeholder.

The goal of the survey is to give you a platform to have your voices heard.  A major component of a true partnership with the Port Authority is for them to hear what the needs of the community are.  We DO NOT want the Port Authority to develop and implement initiatives without input from the people they are supposed to be helping. 
You are also welcome to come to a MWBE Coalition meeting to provide input as well. Our next meeting is Monday, August 20th. Start time is 6:30pm. Our meetings are held at Greater Springfield Community Church which is located at 177-06 129th Avenue, Jamaica, NY  11434...
