Businesses offered $2,000 technology, tourism grants

Applications for the grants, which the Fauquier County Economic Development Authority will fund, are due by May 26.
Fauquier businesses can qualify for $2,000 grants to support technology or tourism initiatives.

The Fauquier County Department of Economic Development will accept grant applications through Friday, May 26.

“The programs are part of the department’s initiatives designed to assist the county’s existing business community by encouraging improvements that contribute to growth in business revenues,” Economic Development Director Miles Friedman said in a press release. “Both grant programs provide up to $2,000, with a 1-to-1 match required. 

“The tourism grants apply to county tourism businesses, while the technology grants apply to any county business making technology improvements such as website development, database development, and other e-commerce innovations.”
 
Grantees will receive notification in June, with the requirement to complete funded projects within 12 months. 
 
The Fauquier County Economic Development Authority funds the grants, which use no taxpayer money, according to Mr. Friedman.
