The “GO Virginia” initiative aims to support private sector growth and job creation. It is vital that they hear directly from our regional businesses to understand needs, opportunities, and challenges.

This Region 9 Business Survey has been created to collect information and feedback from the widest range of businesses possible. PLEASE take the time to fill out this survey. Any feedback you can provide will be valuable in creating strategies to spur the economic growth of our region.

Looking Ahead:

August-September: Regional Councils will submit their economic growth and diversification plans.

September 12th: GO Board will meet to approve economic growth and diversification plans and begin to award up to $400,000 in grants to each region for the development of their plans. Regions can apply for another $250,000 later in fiscal year 2018.
