The Old Takoma Business Association received a grant of $264,549 from the state of Maryland for its Main Street program, Gov. Larry Hogan (R) announced today.
The grant was part of $7 million the state awarded to 41 Main Street programs in Maryland.
The funding will support operating and capital grants to small businesses in the 33 state- and eight Baltimore City-designated Main Street communities.
“Maryland communities would not be the same without our vibrant, historic Main Streets,” said Hogan in the press release. “We are proud to support local small businesses and help them recover from the economic toll brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“The Old Takoma Business Association’s mission is to bring together businesses, residents and community organizations to build and sustain a vibrant commercial district and preserve the neighborhood’s rich history,” according to the organization’s website.
The nonprofit association supports the commercial district from Takoma Junction in Takoma Park to the Takoma Theater in the Takoma neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
