Resources for Businesses during COVID-19

A number of resources have sprung up to support our local business community during these times. Prince William County Department of Economic Development and the Office of Tourism have a created a dedicated resource page featuring local, state and federal programs. They have also launched #PrinceWilliamStrong, enabling businesses to promote their current services to area residents, such as curbside pickup or virtual classes. Prince William businesses may also schedule free, one-on-one business consultations with Economic Develompent by emailing MWeatherly@pwcgov.org or calling 703-792-5510. You can also sign-up for Economic Development email updates, and follow on FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn.

Our office will continue posting business-related news here, as well. As fitness classes move online, sitdown restaurants offer to-go meal kits and distilleries start producing hand sanitizer, we continue to be awed by the ingenuity of our local business community as you adapt to this once-in-a-generation event. Thank you for all you do for the people of Prince William!
