The Main Street business support Program
The Centro Main Street Program catalyzes inclusive and diverse economic ecosystems and smart urban design to propel main street businesses, entrepreneurs, employees, and residents to financial resilience and success.
We Champion Small Businesses and entrepreneurs
We support downtown small businesses through outreach, connection to resources, one-on-one consultations, specialty promotions, educational programming, and advocacy.
Our program fills an unmet need to develop and implement a healthy business ecosystem inclusive of street level retail, minority and women-owned, mom-and-pop, legacy, and micro-businesses.
