Virginia Business Ready Sites Program

The Virginia Business Ready Sites Program (VBRSP) is a discretionary program established to promote development and characterization of sites (containing a minimum of 100 contiguous, developable acres) to enhance the Commonwealth’s infrastructure and promote the Commonwealth’s competitive business environment.

The VBRSP was developed by the VBRSP Working Group, a team of state, regional, and local stakeholders including VEDP, DEQ, railroad representatives, utility representatives, civil engineers, and other government, business and industry representatives. Grants will be considered on a competitive basis and are made at the discretion of a committee of VBRSP Working Group members. Financial participation by the recipient of a grant will be required.

The Site Characterization Grant is designed to assess the level of existing development at a site and the additional development required to bring the site to a level that will enable the site to be marketed for industrial or commercial economic development purposes.

Applications for Site Characterization Grants will be accepted on a rolling basis beginning April 1, 2018 until funds are depleted.
