NewMark Merrill Companies’ motto is “No Tenant Left Behind” and that means helping its merchants, communities and customers come through this unprecedented time stronger and more connected. With that effort in mind, the company has started the second phase of its “Together We Can” program aimed at helping its tenants remain in business during the pandemic.
In the first phase of the program, the company helped more than 500 tenants collect approximately $20 million in funds from the first round of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) in 2020. Launched in March 2020, the “Together We Can” programs help its small businesses secure available funds from a variety of local, state and federal funding sources including PPP.
The company’s outreach includes a personal phone call to every tenant, company webinars to further explain the process, providing retail brokers as a free resource to help tenants navigate the application process and answer specific questions for businesses, and coordinating with a lending partner, A10 Capital, to simplify and personalize the application and funding process. In addition, the company has set up a dedicated website that contains real-time resources to help with the PPP process.
“We are in a partnership with our tenants and with that partnership, we believe that we need to do our best to help them succeed,” said Sandy Sigal, president and CEO of NewMark Merrill.
