Capitol Hill is an economically and culturally important business district, as well as Seattle's historic epicenter for the LGBTQ business and residential community. It’s where Seattleites work, live, or travel to for its thriving business, education, restaurant, arts, and nightlife scene.


What is the Capitol Hill Business Alliance (CHBA)?

With the closing of the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce, GSBA has worked with key stakeholders, and thanks to support from the City of Seattle Office of Economic Development, has created a new program dedicated to serving this vital neighborhood. It’s the launch of a new era of support for the Capitol Hill business community. 

The Capitol Hill Business Alliance is dedicated to ensuring a healthy, vibrant, and diverse neighborhood business community for all. The Alliance will provide business development, engagement, and advocacy for Capitol Hill businesses and nonprofits who are committed to the economic vitality of Capitol Hill. To learn more about what the CHBA can do for you and your business, contact us.

Capitol Hill Business Alliance (CHBA) is a program of GSBA.
