GO Virginia will dedicate up to $14.66 million from the program year 2020 statewide competitive pool to create the GO Virginia Economic Resilience and Recovery Program. This program will help regions build capacity to support and serve existing businesses, priority traded sectors and essential businesses, including the health care system and its supply chain during this crisis. This initiative will focus resources on economic resiliency and recovery while staying true to the GO Virginia mission.
Each GO Virginia regional council may apply for up to $1 million to support strategic initiatives in response to the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. A dedicated reserve of $5.66 million is set aside for statewide projects for extraordinary need or extraordinary positive economic impact.
