The Main Street business support Program
The Centro Main Street Program promotes resiliency and success among San Antonio’s downtown small businesses.
We envision a healthy downtown ecosystem inclusive of street-level retail, minority and women-owned, mom-and-pop, legacy, and micro-businesses.
Storefront Resiliency Initiative
Our Storefront Resiliency Initiative offers two grants to help downtown small businesses be more resilient and responsive to unexpected property damage. Businesses are invited to apply for one or both grants at this time.
Grants will be awarded to eligible businesses on a first-come, first-serve basis at the discretion of Centro until funds are depleted.
Centro Main Street Navigator Services
The Main Street program supports small businesses through direct outreach, one-on-one business consultations, connection to resources, educational programming, and advocacy.
Connect with our Main Street Navigator to learn more and schedule your initial consultation.
