Economic Resilience and Recovery (ERR) Program
Due to the near and long-term impacts of COVID-19 on regional economics the GO Virginia State Board has authorized the use of $14.66M in statewide competitive funds. With support of at least 2 or more localities, Regional Councils may apply for up to $1.06M, for projects that focus resources on targeted industry sectors and the supply chains that support them, as well as highly impacted locally traded sectors.
Fast Access (grant applications of $100,000 or less): Fast Access requests may be for planning/needs or risk assessment activities or smaller-scale implementation projects.
Implementation: grant applications requesting more than $100,000
Enhanced Capacity Building
The Region 8 Council may award Enhanced Capacity Building funds for a project not suitable for a Per Capita Implementation grant award but that undertakes activities that the Regional Council may want to encourage through a small amount funding. Enhanced Capacity Building activities support analysis or other efforts that lead to project development and implementation. Examples could include activities such as a feasibility study, assessment or planning study, capacity building, and other similar initiatives that will lead to successful projects.
