Downtown Independent Business Alliance (DIBA) supports and connects the network of diverse small businesses in Lower Manhattan. We promote the cultural and economic contributions that we offer to our neighborhoods, and advance the voice of small business owners through advocacy and legislation.


Our mission is to:

✔  Promote and advocate for the needs of small businesses

✔  Pool resources to make services and benefits accessible to all our members i.e. legal, financial, healthcare and marketing

✔  Share information to help business owners navigate City and State agencies and permits

✔  Host workshops, panels, and discussion groups to problem-solve the urgent issues faced by small businesses

✔  Conduct surveys and research to show the state of small businesses in Lower Manhattan
