Governors Update - Rebuild VA Is Expanding!
As you know, VRLTA has been advocating the restructuring of Governor Ralph Northam’s Rebuild VA economic recovery fund for businesses impacted by COVID-19. The original program excluded businesses that had received federal relief and prohibited hotels from acquiring funds through the program.
This morning the Governor announced that he was expanding eligibility of the Rebuild VA grant. Under the new criteria, hotels now qualify for the grant fund. In addition, other hospitality- and tourism-related businesses that previously were excluded because they obtained relief through federal CARES Act programs may now apply for the Rebuild VA grant.
