Community Development Roadshow

Event Description

Our first Community Development Roadshow is coming soon in Lynchburg on July 22, in conjunction with the Virginia Main Street Downtown Intersections training. For more information on Downtown Intersections, click here.

Stakeholders will be introduced to DHCD programs through examples of how communities have used these grant funds, and participants will learn about the application process, including timelines and what makes a strong application, in anticipation of the upcoming grant cycles.


Attendees will learn about the following DHCD programs:

Community Business Launch (CBL)
