From the Mayor’s Office:

“Mayor Muriel Bowser today awarded over $2.6 million in Great Streets Small Business Capital Improvement Reimbursement Grants to 53 small businesses across all eight wards. This investment continues the Bowser Administration’s efforts to support local businesses, create new job opportunities for DC residents, and grow the District’s emerging neighborhoods.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy – they create jobs and business for DC residents and neighborhoods and help us give Washingtonians in all eight wards a fair shot,” said Mayor Bowser. “It is fitting that we celebrate the Great Streets grantees during Small Business Week, highlighting all they do to create opportunity and drive innovation in Washington, DC.”
