Small Business Resource Center (SBRC)

The Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) launched the Small Business Resource Center (SBRC) in April 2011 to provide a more effective path for potential and current entrepreneurs to gain valuable information through training and consultation services and grow their businesses.

The SBRC is a one-stop-shop concierge service where aspiring and existing business owners can become equipped with the step-by-step process of navigating the District’s regulatory process, providing business owners with information, guidelines, and support, thereby identifying opportunities to succeed in today’s business environment.

After 10 years of a proven success, the SBRC has expanded its offerings supporting one common goal – to make starting a business in the District of Columbia easier.
