The safety of our members is our top priority. We will closely monitor the ever-changing developments of COVID-19 and keep you updated as it pertains to future WIBA events.  

Read on for an assistance effort from the Small Business Administration, a way to highlight your company, and tips for supporting local during this time.

If your business has sustained economic loss due to COVID-19, please complete the SBA worksheet below and email to

Let’s help each other during this challenging time. With all the uncertainty, things can seem daunting and overwhelming and we’re here to support you!

We're going to highlight our members on our upcoming newsletters and social media as a way to continue to promote you and your business.

If you’d like to be featured, please e-mail a retail special you’re currently selling, a service you’re currently offering, etc. along with a picture or your company logo to Tristan at
These restrictions and precautions will no doubt take a toll on our local economy; an economy that is primarily driven by small, local businesses. For this reason, supporting local business is more important now than it ever was.

Here's a few options for supporting local during this time:

Shop Online. If you're immunocompromised, at high-risk, or still just don't feel comfortable going out, many of our businesses offer the ability to shop online. You can purchase merchandise, or even better... grab gift cards throughout the District to use in the future. 

Phone It In. If your favorite business doesn't offer online shopping, consider calling to see if you can make your purchase over the phone. Many businesses have the capability to take credit card payment over the phone, and most restaurants offer take-out or catering options. 

Take It to Social Media. If you've found yourself at home and spending more time on Facebook or Instagram than ever, use that time and opportunity to talk up your favorite businesses. Better yet, submit a review on Google or Yelp. 

Get A Quote. Time at home may also mean the ability to get to tasks that you may have been putting off because of lack of time. Call any one of our providers in the District to get a quote on insurance, tax preparation, or other professional services. 

Our community will absolutely stay safe and make it through this, but not without the support of each other.
