2016 Designation 

How-to-Apply Workshops

DHCD will be accepting up to three new designated Virginia Main Street Communities into this successful Virginia Main Street program in 2016. The communities must meet the eligibility criteria to be considered.  In addition to becoming part of the internationally-renowned National Main Street Center, a designated Virginia Main Street Community receives an array of intensive assistance designed to advance its local revitalization efforts. Customized design assistance, access to state and national specialists, training on key downtown issues and ongoing marketing and promotions support are among the range of services provided to Virginia Main Street communities.

Three how-to-apply workshops will be conducted for communities interested in completing the Main Street designation application. Virginia Main Street staff will provide detailed review of the application process and assist with participant questions.  Attendance is highly recommended, though not required, for application for Virginia Main Street designation.
