Great Streets

Great Streets envisions L.A. thoroughfares that are accessible and useful to all. MFLA is backing a key partnership initiative to support small businesses along the city’s first 15 Great Streets.

A $4 million partnership to drive economic vitality along some of L.A.’s most vibrant urban corridors.

Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Great Streets Initiative aims to make L.A.’s streets and roads accessible and vibrant for every L.A. resident.

To get there, MFLA is partnering with the Mayor’s initiative to support Great Streets Great Business, a $4 million program benefitting small business owners along L.A.’s first 15 designated Great Streets corridors.

In partnership with the Valley Economic Development Center (VEDC), Great Streets Great Business gives qualified small businesses easier access to capital, along with a range of support services in real estate and business development. Working out of the City’s BusinessSource centers, VEDC coordinates workshops and one-on-one consultations for local business owners.

Alongside VEDC and the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Economic and Workforce Development Department and AT&T are joining Great Streets to make these services available to small businesses in L.A.
