Eligible businesses must either own or lease their facility. Grant levels are determined by the size of commercial space, with grants up to $25,000 based on a business’s square footage.

Basic Eligibility Requirements:

  • A physical business address in Prince William County
  • Open and operating as of Dec. 31, 2020, with a 2021 Prince William County Business License
  • Commercial location under 25,000 contiguous square feet OR standalone entertainment venue with more than 1,100 permanent seats
  • Primary business operations in Arts, Entertainment, Event Venues, Recreation, Child Enrichment, Personal Services, Restaurants/Food Services, Retail
  • Must have experienced financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic

Businesses must use Restore Retail grant funds for general operating expenses. Examples include payroll, rent, insurance, or other operating costs; or adaptive costs related to COVID-19, such as purchasing e-commerce equipment, website creation, or upgrade of an online sales site.
