Congress Heights Is Open for Business!
We support retail investment in Congress Heights through retention and expansion of
existing businesses and the recruitment of new businesses.
Congress Heights Main Streets is an extension of Congress Heights – we emphasize mutual goals and mutual benefits for businesses and community residents. Partnership and community engagement are essential to reaching positive outcomes from the development process. CHMS excels in maintaining an effective collaboration that leads to community success.
Our work is predicated on directing specialized expertise towards overcoming the formidable challenges of economic development in a distressed urban community. We concentrate on delivering substantive, visible improvements including façade renovations, new business capacity building, and improving physical and fiscal management processes for existing business owners.
We are a community based, business-focused service organization uniquely positioned to implement a proven business development strategy, which will lead to thriving, sustainable economic revitalization within the Martin Luther King Jr. business corridor in Ward 8.
