Economic & Business Development
Businesses and communities work best when they work together
We believe that businesses and communities work best when they work together. Focusing on economic and business development in these disadvantaged and vulnerable communities provides and maintains a productive linkage between business and community interests in commercial corridors. We work collaboratively to achieve results that are beneficial to DC residents.
Ward 7 Business Incubator Program
Commercial revitalization, business retention, business expansion, local job growth, and improved availability of quality goods and services are our priorities.
Some of the immediate needs of the businesses we work with include: more attractive public space design and architecture, better mix of retail services, sustained marketing and promotions, ready access to capital and historical and neighborhood branding.
