Many of you know that small businesses have been heavily impacted by COVID-19 across the world. Hoboken has been one of the towns where a large segment of the businesses that make up this town are small, locally-owned businesses.

The Hoboken Business Alliance was created prior to COVID-19 and was formed to specifically support and further help small business owners.
