What is a Main Street?
DC Main Streets is a comprehensive program funded by the Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) that promotes the revitalization of commercial districts in the District of Columbia. Created in 2002 through the National Trust for Historic Preservation, DC Main Streets serve as the citywide coordinating program that provides services and funding for the eighteen designated Main Streets programs in the District of Columbia.
There are eighteen active Main Street organizations that comprise the DC Main Streets authorized programs and grant recipients. District Bridges currently manages the Columbia Heights | Mount Pleasant and Lower Georgia Avenue Main Street programs, two of the eighteen programs city wide.
