Virginia Port Authority

Staff continues to work actively with the Virginia Port Authority, leveraging its business assistance programs to incent companies such as High Liner Foods, Continental and other port users with their business expansions. Importantly, we were successful in obtaining VPA grant funding in the amount of $640,000 for the Seafood Industrial Park West Bulkhead Improvements Project, and plan to apply for additional grant funding from this source in subsequent years for other SIP projects. We continue to participate in marketing activities with VPA, including jointly hosting site selection consultants to tour and learn about our regional port facilities, with the Hampton Roads Economic Development Alliance and with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership.
