DHCD logoAt A&A, we know that funding is one of the first hurdles a project must overcome in order to move from planning into design and construction. A&A keeps up-to-date on available funding programs to better serve our clients. Recently we attended the 2017 Industrial Revitalization Fund (IRF) workshop held in Marion, VA. The IRF program leverages local and private resources to achieve market-driven redevelopment of vacant and deteriorated structures. Two million dollars is available for the 2017 round with a maximum award of $600,000 to be matched by the applicant.

In the past, applications for this program have been due in the fall, however this year the due date has been moved to May 19, 2016, and is anticipated to be due in the spring in upcoming years as well. For more information about funding, please contact A&A President Jessica Nichols at
