Helping Communities

Four Small Business Owners

Dominion Energy is committing $600,000 toward the newly established We Care Rebuild Project, a community-led initiative providing support to small, women-owned and minority-owned businesses in Richmond and Hampton Roads as they manage coronavirus impacts and engage in community rebuilding.

Small businesses dealing with financial difficulties due to the coronavirus pandemic or disruptions in business continuity will be eligible to apply for grants, ranging from $2,500 to $10,000. Funds will support a range of emergency needs and crisis resources, including clean-up, such as graffiti removal and other beautification efforts, bill support, business coaching, and professional counseling, among other services.

The We Care RVA Rebuild Project in Richmond will be led by the Metropolitan Business League (MBL) and include Venture Richmond, Local Initiatives Support Corporation Virginia (LISC), Virginia Community Capital (VCC), and Chamber RVA as partners. The We Care Hampton Roads Rebuild Project will be led by the Urban League and supported by Black BRAND, LISC Hampton Roads, and VCC.

More information on the Richmond area program can be found at: https://thembl.org/we-care-rva-rebuild. The application period will open on Sept. 21.

More information on the Hampton Roads area program will be available soon at www.ulhr.org. The application period will open on Oct. 1.

If you’re a small business, nonprofit of house of worship and need additional assistance, we’re here to help! Read more about our expanded EnergyShare program for assistance with energy bills and our other coronavirus relief efforts.
