Yesterday, we reported that the Friends of RIA (FoRIA) has partnered up with the Washington Area Community Investment Fund (WACIF). Today, the group has announced that they are also partnering with the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GWHCC). Check out FoRIA’s website to help connect potential business owners with resources and training by clicking here.
More on the GWHCC:
The GWHCC’s Small Business Assistance Program will provide 1) practical workshop/business to business networking events and 2) customized, one-on-one technical assistance to low and middle income enterprises. The individualized assistance will include the following topics:
Accounting and financial management
General business operations
General legal counsel
Real estate and leasing
Sales and marketing
Small business certifications
Social and other web-based media
All of this should excite residents and those that want to see the Avenue grow with positive redevelopment. Great job, FoRIA!

Glad to hear GWHCC is finally getting recognition for the work they have been doing on RIA for the past 4 years. They have also helped with the businesses of 12th Street, North Capitol Street, and other parts of Ward 5.
On behalf of the GWHCC and Foundation, a belated thank you for all the positive comments! It’s been our pleasure to serve Ward 5 small businesses and support groups that want to help improve their commercial corridors. If you are a business owner or want to start a business in Ward 5-contact us!
