Economic Development Authority Entrepreneur Grant

The Economic Development Authority (EDA) of the City of Roanoke is dedicated to assisting entrepreneurial activity within the City.  In addition to providing assistance to Virginia Western Community College and the upcoming Gill Memorial Acceleration Center, the EDA is working to revamp its Entrepreneur Grant program.  The program provides grants for entrepreneurs and small businesses located within the City of Roanoke.  Grants will be a combination of reimbursement for Growth Wheel courses taught at the Small Business Development Center, as well as grants for research, equipment, and other approved business items which will lead to increased job creation, sales, and/or capital investment for the business.
