Annually during the first week of May, the Coalition for Nonprofit Housing and Economic Development, along with District agency partners Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD), Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED), and the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA), and the entire small business community celebrate Small Business Week in the District of Columbia.
In light of COVID-19, and its impact on the small business community, CNHED has extended our traditional week-long celebration to span the entire month of May. As vaccine rollout progresses and the District enters recovery, it’s vital that neighbors and communities support the small and local businesses that were hit hardest by the pandemic. #DCSmallBizMonth is more than just a celebration of our small businesses, but also a call to action to actively support them. Together, we can build back stronger. Entrepreneurs, small business owners, local contractors AND you.
