 The Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation is the nonprofit arm of the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and an organization that provides technical assistance to low- and medium-income businesses.


The intended result is to strengthen the economic opportunities of small business owners by:

  • Improving and retaining existing small businesses
  • Guiding start-up entrepreneurs to begin and grow successful enterprises
  • Drawing more local customers who currently shop outside the area
  • Connecting businesses to certification opportunities


 In order to reach the intended result, the GWHCCF Small Business Assistance Program will provide 1) practical workshop/business to business networking events and 2) customized, one-on-one technical assistance to low and middle income enterprises. The individualized assistance will include the following topics:

  • Accounting and financial management
  • Customer service
  • General business operations
  • General legal counsel
  • Merchandising
  • Property improvements
  • Real estate and leasing
  • Sales and marketing
  • Small business certifications
  • Social and other web-based media

For more than 39 years, GWHCCF has been assisting Hispanics and other minorities to open successful businesses and providing technical assistance to existing business owners through its programs with the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), Arlington Economic Partnership, Office on Latino Affairs (OLA), Montgomery College Hispanic Business Institute, and more recently, the Prince George’s County Minority Business Development Division.
