MainStreet's mission is to help main street businesses struggle less and prosper more during transportation projects by providing information, facilitating communication, offering business resources and direct consulting services.
MainStreet is a small business assistance program funded by the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA). Funding for the program was approved as part of the RTA plan on May 16, 2006. The $2.1 billion, 20-year RTA plan included $10 million for small business assistance to help businesses affected by the transportation improvement projects in the RTA plan.
Businesses along RTA roadway and improvement projects are eligible to receive third-party consulting to assist the businesses prior to construction and during construction, and put the business in the position to be more successful post construction.
