PSEG Supports DSSD’s Small Business Relaunch Grant Program

To help reenergize Bridgeport’s downtown economy, Bridgeport Downtown Special Services District (DSSD) has launched a small business relaunch grant program with support from local leadership. Among that leadership, PSEG has supported the DSSD to ensure that all of the businesses at the core of our city have every opportunity to reopen successfully. For businesses that have had difficulty receiving funding from federal and state initiatives, these grants will provide a $2,500 stimulus paired with pro bono technical assistance in a wide variety of business redevelopment areas. Bridgeport Harbor Station 3 plant manager Vinny Fiumidinisi stated “PSEG is proud to support Downtown Bridgeport businesses as they reopen and overcome the unprecedented challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that Downtown Bridgeport will be able to re-emerge as a positive, welcoming, and vibrant community at the intersection of commerce and culture.” Applications for the grant are now open through mid-June with selected businesses being notified before the end of the month.
