Website Conversion Matching Grants Program Process

Interested city businesses should first contact the Fredericksburg Department of Economic Development and Tourism to determine initial eligibility (Amy Peregoy, Economic Development Specialist, 540-372-1216) and then submit an application to the Department for review. The application process is as follows:

  1. Applicants electronically submit grant application forms to the Department of Economic Development and Tourism.
  2. Economic Development staff will review and forward properly completed applications to Vectec Solutions.
  3. Vectec Solutions will review applications and interview the applicants to determine project eligibility and readiness. Note: Projects must be legal, ethical and commercially viable. Applications will be evaluated based on project potential (including increased revenues, job growth and retention).
  4. Vectec Solutions will develop a work plan, budget and recommended matching grant funding level for approval first by the business and then the Economic Development staff.
  5. Economic Development staff makes the final grant approval of the qualified applications on behalf of the EDA.
  6. Approved grant recipients will be required to pay their portion of the project cost to Vectec Solutions at the signing of the Vectec Solutions Agreement and Statement of Work, before the project begins.
  7. Fredericksburg EDA grant funds will pay Vectec Solutions the remaining portion of cost upon project completion (not to exceed $500).
