PPE Care Packages for District Businesses

As businesses move to safely serve their communities, the Mayor is supporting the local business community by offering Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) care packages.

The Department of Small and Local Business Development is working with the Anacostia Business Improvement District and the DowntownDC Business Improvement District to provide free Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Care Packages to DC businesses consisting of limited quantities of masks, hand sanitizer, disinfectant and sanitizer wipes, hand towels and surgical gowns. Through this second round of PPE care packages, the Bowser Administration is investing an additional $1.7 million of essential supplies to local businesses to support them in these trying times.

There will be two PPE distribution sites, one in Anacostia at Maple View Flats (2228 Martin Luther King Ave, SE) and the other will be downtown at the Convention Center (enter on L St NW side of the building). In order to receive a PPE Care Package, businesses will need to complete the PPE Sign-Up Form. Upon completion of the PPE Sign-Up Form, the business owner will receive confirmation and instructions for pick-up (delivery is not available).
