DCSmallBizHelp is a unique online destination created for local small businesses in the District of Columbia. This website serves to provide small business owners, like you, with access to information about the myriad of resources available to you, as you PLAN, START, and GROW your business in our wonderful city.

Our goal is to connect you to the information about organizations providing support to small business owners at every stage of their business life cycle. Each organization providing small business assistance is profiled so that you can learn more about what is being offered in your backyard — and beyond. On this website, you can also learn about the experiences of small business owners, just like you, who have accessed these services and put them to use in starting and growing their businesses.

Now, you have all the information at your fingertips. We encourage you to take advantage of these free or low-cost services that exist in your neighborhood and citywide.

The concept for DCSmallBizHelp grew out of the Small Business Policy Project (SBPP), a comprehensive initiative to improve the environment for small business success in the District, with funding provided by Citi Community Development. The SBPP is now working to implement the more than 60+ recommendations they devised to make it easier for small business to flourish in the District.

Additional Services developed by the Small Business Development Project

www.DCSmallBizLoans.com gives small businesses access to four local community lenders at the same time. With a single registration on DCSmallBizLoans.com, a business can prequalify for a selected loan product.  After an initial matching process, the borrower then completes and submits the loan application(s) online.
