Port Host Communities Revitalization Fund


The General Assembly has allocated funding to be used for the strategic removal or redevelopment of port related properties in the five port host communities of the town of Front Royal and the cities of Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Richmond. For the purposes of this program, the term “port-related” will be considered to mean any non-residential structure that was built or used for a purpose related to port activities, is located near the port so as to benefit from port activities, or is located on or near a transit route (rail or highway) that served/serves the port. These structures, in their current deteriorated condition, may not be suitable for productive use and may stand as a substantial deterrent for future economic opportunity in the surrounding area and region.
