A new grant program for small businesses and nonprofits called Rebuild VA will provide grants of up to three times the applicant’s average monthly eligible expenses up to a maximum award of $10,000. 

The application will be available on Aug. 10. 

These grants are aimed at assisting small businesses and nonprofits that have faced economic distress as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eligible entities include those in the following industry sectors: restaurant and beverage service, non-essential retail, exercise and fitness, personal care and personal grooming, entertainment and public amusement, private campgrounds, and overnight summer camps.

This statewide program is capitalized with $70 million.
 
Half of the proceeds will be directed toward small businesses and nonprofits located in economically disadvantaged areas, including ensuring adequate representation of women-owned and minority-owned businesses.
