Small Business Capital Improvement Grants
The purpose of the Great Streets Small Business Capital Improvement Grants is to support existing small businesses, attract new small businesses, increase the District’s tax base, create new jobs for District residents, and transform emerging commercial corridors across the District into thriving and inviting neighborhood centers.
When funding is made available, the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) awards individual grants of up to $85,000 per small business. Grant funds can be used to reimburse awardees for expenses that they have incurred through improving their place of business. Business owners with locations along the Great Streets corridors may apply for the Small Business Capital Improvement Grants. To verify that your business is located in a funding area, search for your business address here.
