City of Boston – Office of Economic Development (OED)

The Office of Economic Development (OED) provides entrepreneurs and existing businesses with access to financial and technical resources. OED also supports the nationally recognized Boston Main Streets program, designed to promote the continued revitalization of the City’s neighborhood commercial districts through public/private partnerships.

Storefront Improvements

Across the city, improvements to storefronts are making businesses and districts more attractive and inviting and, in turn, attracting new customers and businesses. Business owners often see an increase in sales. Storefront improvements also help landlords rent their vacant or difficult-to-rent properties.

Music on Main

If your business is interested in hosting a live music event, WRMS can provide a list of local musicians and groups across a variety of genres. City entertainment fees are waived for district businesses. Please contact info@wrms.org.
