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).  

The benefits of being in the Norfolk Enterprise Zone (NEZ) are that it provides a business with the ability to leverage other available local, state, and federal programs. This enables and encourages private sector investment in targeted areas throughout the City of Norfolk. This program can help transformative projects come to realization.

To determine if your business is within one of 14 designated zones and for additional information click on the link: Enterprise Zones – Norfolk Department of Economic Development  or contact the Local Enterprise Zone Administrator George Hoddinott.
