Stephanie Thomas is the new Director of Programs and Small Business Services at the Washington Area Community Investment Fund (WACIF), and she stops by to chat about some of the new programs that they are rolling out to help support and grow small businesses in DC. As always, we check in with Casey from Good Food Markets – they are celebrating their 3 year anniversary of being on RIA Main Street! Then we are joined by Kevin Bush, DC’s Chief Resiliency Officer.
