What is GO Virginia?

The Virginia Initiative for Growth & Opportunity in each Region or “GO Virginia” is economic development initiative launched by the Virginia Business Higher Education Council and the Council on Virginia’s Future to help generate private-sector growth and job opportunities in the Commonwealth.

GO Virginia offers grant funding to encourage collaboration between private industry, higher education, and local governments to produce results that will grow and diversify the regional economies — and ultimately the Commonwealth.

Grant funding is available for qualified projects that impact one or more of the nine GO Virginia Regions. For more information on GO Virginia and other regions go to the GO Virginia website.
