The Fauquier County Department of Economic Development is now accepting applications for two matching grant programs administered by the Department; the Tourism Matching Grant and the Technology Matching Grant.

The programs are part of the Department’s initiatives designed to assist the County’s existing business community by encouraging improvements that contribute to growth in business revenues.  Both grant programs provide up to $2,000 with a 1:1 match required.  The Tourism Grants apply to county tourism businesses, while the Technology Grants apply to any county business making technology improvements such as website development, database development, and other e-commerce innovations.

The deadline for submission of grant applications is by EOD on Friday, May 26th, 2017.  Grantees will receive notification in June, and funded projects must be completed, within 12 months from award notification.

These grant programs are funded by the Economic Development Authority and administered by the Fauquier County Department of Economic Development.  No taxpayer funds were used to fund these grant programs.  To view Grant Guidelines, go to www.FauquierBusiness.com and look under the ‘News‘ section.
