DHCD Resurgence Grant Will Help with Pandemic Recovery
Waynesboro, VA – Governor Youngkin has announced that Waynesboro will receive a $100,000 2023 Virginia Statewide Business District Resurgence Grant to support small business in downtown and neighboring areas.
“We are grateful to Governor Youngkin and the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) for this grant which will provide assistance to small businesses and entrepreneurs,” stated Greg Hitchin, Director of Economic Development and Tourism. “Through a series of competitive grants these funds will enable us to provide advanced business services, façade design services, and façade improvement grants to small businesses that normally would not be able to afford them which will help advance them to the next level of success.”
Building on the successful 2022 Resurgence Grant, this grant will provide support for small businesses to help move them to their next level of capacity with more sophisticated assistance such as e-commerce or consultant services as well as expand the current façade grant program to a larger area which will cover a greater number of women-owned, minority-owned, and immigrant-owned businesses.
