The Southern Virginia GO Region 3 Council is pleased to announce that Project Applications can now be submitted for review. Applications are due in full no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 2, 2018.
The Region 3 Growth & Diversification Plan identifies three Areas of Critical Need through which the Region 3 Council determines how to invest its limited resources. Applicants should submit projects that advance one of more of these three areas:
“The plan we’ve submitted was created with input from over 200 stakeholders through a series of roundtables to provide a blueprint for moving forward,” said Charles Majors, chairman of the Region 3 Council. “It’s designed to be an investment strategy for the future that paints a broad picture of who we are as a region and where we want to be down the road. It’s a starting point, and what we will use to review project proposals. A successful project proposal must be consistent with this plan.”
The Region 3 Council is specifically looking for projects that first, reflect a spirit of collaboration, bringing together at least two jurisdictions and many partners to accomplish a shared goal; and second, show ideas consistent with the Region 3 Growth & Diversification Plan and reflect the shared vision of the region that can ultimately lead to higher-paying jobs for Region 3 citizens.
The timeline for the Round 2 Application Process is as follows:
