2022 Robust Retail Citywide Grants

The Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) is excited to announce that we will be accepting applications for the 2022 Robust Retail Citywide Grants. A robust retail sector is critical to maintaining the vibrancy of DC neighborhoods, but due to market realities of the past years, retail businesses are under threat of business decline and closure. The 2022 Robust Retail Citywide grant(s) support existing DC-based retail businesses in maintaining operations and viability during the current small business crisis.

DSLBD intends to award up to $7,500 per business to approximately 78 businesses from the $588,000 in available funding for the Fiscal Year 2022. This grant will be operated as a reimbursement grant, awarded via lottery, to DC retail businesses that have met all eligibility requirements by the final deadline. Businesses that received a Robust Retail Citywide award in FY2021 are not eligible to apply.

Applicants are encouraged to read the full Request for Application.
