2023 Virginia Enterprise Zones
In-Person How-to-Qualify Workshops


The Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) will hold four in-depth "How-to-Qualify" Workshops in-person on how to apply for Virginia Enterprise Zone grant incentives. These workshops will provide detailed instructions on the qualification process for Grant Year 2022 Real Property Investment Grants and Job Creation Grants. Grant Year 2022 grants include grants for jobs created in calendar year 2022 and grants for real property investments that received final placed-in-service documentation in calendar year 2022. Attendance is open to the public and free of charge. Please choose the location most convenient to you and register using the appropriate link below. For more information about the program, please visit the EZ webpage. For questions regarding registration or the Enterprise Zone program, please contact Kate Pickett Irving at  katherine.pickett@dhcd.virginia.gov  or (804) 371-7171.



The application instruction manuals for the Job Creation and the Real Property Investment Grants will be made available at the beginning of January 2023. Likewise, an updated set of Agreed-Upon-Procedures for the CPA Attestation process will be made available at that time. We appreciate your patience as we finalize these documents.
