This online course was created in part to equip Main Street directors and staff to advocate for the Main Street Revitalization and Recovery Program. Main Street’s businesses are facing a crisis like no other, and they need the support offered by local Main Street programs now more than ever. That’s why Main Street America is advocating to Congress for $100M to be included in an upcoming stimulus to sustain and expand the essential work of Main Street leaders in every corner of the country. Learn how you can become more involved in the efforts of Main Street America here.
