The COVID-19 Crisis is having a devastating impact to our region’s small businesses. Federal and State support is valued, but alone is not enough to protect jobs, preserve businesses or sense of community. Your chamber of commerce, industries and regional media are united in the rescue by raising funds for immediate grants to small businesses.
It is the desire of RegionAHEAD to provide support to small businesses and sole proprietorships in the arts/entertainment/recreation, accommodation and food services, retail trade, and manufacturing sectors.
You are eligible to apply for funding from the Local Business Recovery Fund if you are an existing business whose operations have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 virus. RegionAHEAD serves the counties of Carter, Greene, Hancock, Hawkins, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi and Washington Counties in TN and Buchanan, Dickenson, Lee, Russell, Scott, Smyth, Tazewell, Washington and Wise Counties along with the independent cities of Bristol and Norton in Virginia.
