U.S Small Business Administration: Coronavirus Business Assistance. The Commonwealth of Virginia is now officially listed and classified as an “eligible” area. We encourage interested businesses to review the funding options and submit an application for financial assistance. The number assigned to the state of Virginia for the emergency declaration is VA-00087.
The Virginia Employment Commission contains information on unemployment and other business needs. The Governor has waived the one-week waiting period so that workers can start receiving benefits right away.
