This year the Department of Housing and Community Development has revised the Local Zone Administrator signature page. Make sure that you download the new document when downloading the Real Property Investment Grant or Job Creation Grant. The new form requires applicants to submit their form EZ-RPIG and form EZ-JCG to the Local Zone Administrator with the new signature page.

The Virginia Enterprise Zone (VEZ) is a partnership between the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) and local governments to promote economic development through job creation and real property investment through the Job Creation Grant (JCG) and the Real Property Investment Grant (RPIG).
