Our Main Street programs provide direct technical assistance to local businesses to help them thrive. We also plan local events and promotions that draw people to the neighborhoods, create volunteer opportunities, and connect stakeholders.

Neighborhood Strategy Councils

To ensure the needs and values of U Street are represented, we develop a Neighborhood Strategy Council made up of local business owners, residents, and community leaders. Our Neighborhood Strategy Councils advocate on behalf of neighborhood priorities for community-based economic development and seek to enrich neighborhood vitality through supporting local businesses and engaging the community.
