Guidance on using Virginia's CDBG program to support small businesses in COVID-19 recovery

COVID-19 Resources:CDBG Small Business Recovery Assistance

 

The Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) has released guidance on the open submission process for using the Commonwealth's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to support small businesses as they reopen in an environment of increased safety and distancing requirements.

 

CDBG has long been used by partners across the commonwealth to create vibrant, competitive communities of choice. These are places that create, grow, attract and retain businesses. Now, as these small businesses adjust to new market realities and reinvest in their enterprises, local governments can access CDBG Small Business Recovery Assistance resources to support them.

 

The Small Business Recovery Assistance program will help businesses meet their long-term business goals by adjusting to COVID-19 demands. Establishing safe and clean re-opening procedures, in accordance with the governor's guidance, will be necessary for customers and employees to feel safe. It will allow businesses to get back up and running, ideally helping them to retain existing staff, fill vacant positions, create new jobs and position themselves to become more efficient and resilient.
