Was your business impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic?
It’s hard to imagine a business owner who could answer that question with “no.” The Bridge to Recovery program was created in 2020 to help businesses in GO Virginia Region 3, which includes the following localities: Amelia County, Buckingham County, Cumberland County, Nottoway County, Prince Edward County, Charlotte County, Lunenburg County, Brunswick County, Mecklenburg County, Halifax County, City of Danville, Pittsylvania County, City of Martinsville, Henry County, and Patrick County.
Funding is still available, but you need to act fast, because the Bridge to Recovery program is set to close at the end of June 2022.
Bridge to Recovery Prequalified Suppliers are businesses that provide any of the following products and/or services:
1. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including plexiglass and installation, furniture/fixtures, disinfectant, goggles/face shields, barriers/dividers, gowns, respiratory masks, signage, gloves, modification and expansion materials
