Contracting & Employment

In partnership with the District of Columbia, Hoffman-Madison Waterfront is transforming the Southwest Waterfront in to a new world-class neighborhood. We are working closely with our partners at the DC Department of Small and Local Business,, to provide opportunities for DC businesses. We urge DC businesses to apply for certification and to take advantage of the many services provided by DSLBD to DC certified businesses.
