Eastern Market Main Street (EMMS) was established in 2016 to help preserve the historic Eastern Market DC corridor, to support small businesses within the corridor, and to foster a vibrant neighborhood through public and private space improvements, capacity-building resources, and community events and campaigns.
With so many of our corridor businesses impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), EMMS is establishing an Emergency Small Business Support Grant program. This emergency assistance will provide interim relief and proceeds that can be used by small businesses to pay operating expenses including payroll, insurance, suppliers, rent, fixed debt payments and other mission critical operating costs.
We are reaching out to the Capitol Hill community (and beyond) to humbly ask for donations to this vital effort. Thank you for your support and please help us spread the word!
Note: EMMS supports small businesses in the corridor from Pennsylvania Ave SE to North Carolina Ave SE (6th Street SE to 8th Street SE): https://www.easternmarketmainstreet.org/
