3. Support great parks
4. Broadcast NoMa’s benefits
5. Elevate BID core services


Cleaning, safety, economic development, beautification, marketing, events, and more!

The NoMa BID provides a variety of services to enhance the neighborhood and support its emergence as a prime business location within the District and a desirable residential neighborhood.
