COVID-19 What SoBBRO’s doing


How is SoBro Responding to COVID-19?

The South Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation (SoBro) has been dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in the South Bronx for almost 50 years and over those years we have seen our community grow and prosper and come together in times of great need.

The COVID-19 public health crisis is a time we all must stay stronger than ever. We must continue to do what is best for our community, abiding by the health advice from professionals and making smart decisions. SoBro has transitioned our team to a remote work environment and will continue to evolve and adapt to ensure that our programs and initiatives will be there for our community when we get through this crisis.

As a not-for-profit developer of affordable and special needs housing, SoBro will continue our efforts to develop and operate safe, quality, affordable housing. SoBro understands that a lot of businesses are struggling right now because of the crisis and our business development team stands ready to provide you information, technical assistance and support to help you get through this uncertain economic time.

SOBRO’s youth and workforce programs are remotely operational, prepared to minimize disruption in programs and ready to support the people of the Bronx and Harlem with their educational and vocational needs.

We will get through this crisis together. SoBro has served the community since 1972 and is dedicated to staying here – ready to serve the community we cherish and are dedicated to. Stay well –


We have created a C19 Emergency Fund to fundraise for short-term relief and long-term support for our children, families and small businesses.
