Chinatown Partnership Economic Development


Networking Chinatown into the Flow of Information, Ideas and Capital 

In the Information Age, Chinatown must be connected to the wider business community in order to thrive and respond effectively to new markets, opportunities and regulations.


 New Business Acceleration Team (NBAT)

The program would make new restaurants, bars, bakeries and butcher shops eligible for a new, streamlined program from NBAT. This program makes it possible for entrepreneurs to open their doors more quickly and help businesses get the answers and services they need from City government.

As part of the program, NBAT works with qualifying businesses to schedule and coordinate most required inspections. Such inspections include, but are not limited to, those conducted by:

  • The New York City Fire Department
  • The Department of Environmental Protection
  • The Department of Buildings
  • The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
