About the Prince William County

Small Business Project Management Program

Since 2018, the Prince William County Department of Development Services' Small Business Project Management Program has served more than 1,922 small business owners. The County recognizes real estate decisions are critical to businesses, not only from a financial perspective, but for the ability to attract customers, access a quality workforce, establish their brand, build community partnerships, and operate in a stable and predictable government environment. The Prince William County Board of County Supervisors adopted and funded an initiative to enhance the level of services for small business owners, startups, and entrepreneurs in FY2019. The Department spearheaded the initiative to improve entrepreneurs’ and small business owners’ experience within the County development process and launched the Small Business Project Management Program in October 2018. For this purpose, the County defined a small business that employees thirty-five or fewer employees. For more information call (703) 792-6930 or email [email protected].
