Virginia Main Street Announces Community Designation How to Apply Workshops

Virginia Main Street (VMS) will be accepting applications, due June 16, for up to four additional communities to be designated in FY2012. 

This intensive approach to downtown revitalization is ideal for DHCD Commercial Affiliates and other smaller localities with pedestrian oriented historic commercial districts that are committed to community-based revitalization strategies. In this expansion round, VMS will focus on economically distressed communities that serve as a focal point for regional economic recovery. 

VMS will consider start-up efforts on an equal basis with communities that have existing downtown improvement organizations. More information about this unique opportunity will be available at three How to Apply Workshops in May. Please register here for one of the following workshops:
