From the Mayor’s Office:

“Mayor Muriel Bowser and Interim Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development John Falcicchio awarded over $2.3 million in Fiscal Year 2020 Great Streets Small Business Grants to 48 local small businesses. The investment continues Mayor Bowser’s effort to support local businesses, create new job opportunities for DC residents, and grow the District’s emerging neighborhoods.

“Small and local businesses are the heart and backbone of DC’s economy – they hire DC residents, circulate DC dollars, and support the culture of our city,” said Mayor Bowser. “I’m particularly proud that this year’s grantees represent such a diverse group of businesses in all eight wards. When we make these types of strategic investments, there’s a ripple effect: we support the businesses and the businesses, in turn, support our residents and empower our neighborhoods.”

The announcement was made at Dudley Beauty College, a 2018 grant recipient on the Rhode Island Avenue corridor in Ward 5. Like many other Great Streets grant recipients, Dudley Beauty College used their grant funding to make improvements to their business, including storefront signage and advertising. The FY20 grant recipients continue to showcase the diversity of the District’s business community. Awardees include businesses ranging from optical retailers and barbershops, to childcare centers and fraternity and sorority apparel stores.

From a dozen to fifty and now up to 124, nicely done DC!!

From a press release:

“While the nation’s capital hosts inauguration weekend, 124 local hospitality businesses are making a statement of love, compassion and community by donating proceeds from the weekend to local charities. Washington, DC’s thriving service industry organized together to give generously from their profits to local service organizations. The diversity of participating venues is as dynamic as the DMV itself, from restaurants like Bad Saint, District Distilling Co. and Oyamel to shops and retailers like Scissor & Comb Salon, Logan Hardware and Glen’s Garden Market. Visitors and residents are encouraged to dine, drink and shop at the participating businesses this Friday, Saturday, Sunday and beyond.

All Is Service DC is an initiative of 124 venues city wide that are donating to causes as diverse as women’s health, the arts, LGBTQ issues, homelessness, food access, support for the local migrant community and the environment. The message has been positively overwhelming: DC’s service industry welcomes all for an opportunity to give back.

All In Service DC is the brainchild of two local service industry professionals inspired to give more to the community.

“We put out the call and DC’s hospitality community responded,” says Alaina Dyne, co-creator of All In Service DC. “Giving back is not just about being generous with your dollars, it is also about being generous with your attention to others. We look forward to opening our doors and attending to all for the inauguration weekend.”

“All In Service DC celebrates DC’s diversity by giving back to local organizations that keep our community thriving,” says, Amanda Carpenter co-creator of All In Service DC. “This project is about pulling together as a community. We are proud of the statement All In Service DC makes: Washington, DC is an amazing place to live, work, dine and drink because we care about our community.”
