Great Streets

Great Streets is the District's multi-year multi-agency commercial revitalization initiative to support existing small businesses, attract new businesses, increase the District's tax base, create new job opportunities for the District residents, and transform emerging corridors into thriving and inviting neighborhood centers that are magnets for private investment. Since it began in 2006, Great Streets has grown into a multi-year, multi-agency program that utilizes public actions and resources to leverage private investment in retail, office space, housing, and cultural facilities across the District. DMPED fosters economic development on the Great Streets corridors by investing in small business development via the Great Streets Retail Small Business Reimbursement Grants, which are competitive grants of up to $50,000 for qualified small business owners who wish to improve their place of business.
