To help get the word out about this important event, hosted by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) on Tuesday, July 21, we’re passing this invitation along to our affordable housing partners and stakeholders.
The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) is a regional economic development agency that represents a partnership of federal, state, and local government. Each year ARC provides funding for several hundred projects in the Appalachian Region, in areas such as business development, education and job training, telecommunications, infrastructure, community development, housing, and transportation. These projects create thousands of new jobs; improve local water and sewer systems; increase school readiness; expand access to health care; assist local communities with strategic planning; and provide technical and managerial assistance to emerging businesses.
During the workshop, DHCD will provide information on applying for funding. There is no fee to attend the event, but attendees need to register by July 17 to help DHCD provide adequate meeting space.
