Our First Year Impact
Glover Park Main Street launched December 1, 2019.
GPMS held an open application process looking to fund $35,000 in facade improvements. The Board was preparing to select six finalists when the cornovirus hit.
Due to the effect of COVID-19, our mission and work changed instantly. All money was reallocated toward direct and technical assistance grants to Glover Park businesses in need.
To date, GPMS has awarded $71,700, funded 27 projects – including reopening supplies and PPE to all Glover Park businesses, and provided more than 280 hours of technical assistance.
Grants to Local Businesses
GPMS was honored to present grant awards to the following small businesses in FY20:
ESW Learning/Kumon Learning Center
Sprig & Sprout
Wide World of Wines
“The Main Street really came through for us during this incredibly difficult year. Suddenly our small business had to adjust to this new COVID-19 world, but Kate and Glover Park Main Streets were there for us at every turn, assisting with upgrades to our facilities, technology, and services in our time of need.
We were able to quickly pivot several aspects of the business to meet these new challenges — now we’re really loving the much-needed upgrades and new customers we were able to attract with their support. THANK YOU Kate and GPMS!!!”

Glover Park’s Bright Future
Glover Park is lucky to be the home of local favorites, a variety of international dining options, design and furniture retail, and a cluster of health & wellness businesses. The neighborhood is seeing new construction, a renovation at Whole Foods, and innovative restaurant concepts launch that we expect will draw new visitors. We’re thrilled to see bustling activity on the corridor.
Remember to shop local, patronize in the neighborhood. Your support keeps the community thriving.
