Getting Started with Business Incentives

DHCD has several programs that can help when starting a new business or expand current operations. Below is a list of programs that may meet your needs.

Virginia Enterprise Zone (VEZ)

VEZ is a partnership between state and local government that encourages job creation and private investment. VEZ accomplishes this by designating Enterprise Zones throughout the state and providing two grant-based incentives, the Job Creation Grant (JCG) and the Real Property Investment Grant (RPIG), to qualified investors and job creators within those zones, while the locality provides local incentives.
