In addition to the GO Grants that are awarded by the GO Virginia State Board and research-related grant funds awarded by the Virginia Research Investment Committee (VRIC) there are many other grant opportunities in Virginia and from the federal government through its agencies.

These grants are available to entrepreneurs, educators, developers, and individuals that are seeking to grow Virginia’s economy through transformational projects. Some of these grants could be used to leverage GO Grants or to otherwise help regions advance the needs and opportunities outline in their respective growth and diversification plans.

As the GO Virginia Foundation identifies grant opportunities that are related to GO Virginia priorities, we will list them on this site. This is by no means an exhaustive list of all grant sources, but we hope that this will be a helpful resource for the regions and project leaders.
