Loudoun County Business Reinvestment and Recovery Grant

The Loudoun County Business Recovery & Reinvention Grant (BRRG) is designed to fund innovative solutions to accelerate business growth for companies that have needed to pivot in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Loudoun County will provide grants of up to $50,000 to help enable companies to make a change to their business model, adopt new technologies or practices, or otherwise reinvent their business to cope with the economic and/or public health requirements and challenges during the pandemic.

See Complete List of Grant Recipients

BRRG applicants were required to demonstrate the following criteria:

  • Licensed and operational for-profit business in Loudoun County
  • Operational prior to March 1, 2020
  • Currently open and operating (Funds may NOT be used to restart a business closed during COVID-19)
  • Commitment to maintain funded project within Loudoun County for a minimum of 2 years post-award
  • 0-250 employees (no limit on 1099 contractors)
  • Pre-Covid (March 1, 2020) revenue of at least $50,000 and no more than $8 million.
  • Funds will only be distributed via ACH (If awarded the business must provide the Economic Development Authority additional banking forms for financial disbursement)

How were applications reviewed?

  1. All applications will undergo an administrative review for eligibility requirements. Any application that does not meet the minimum requirements will be disqualified at this stage. This includes:
    • Any application for a business not licensed and in good standing with the County or the incorporated town at the time the application is received.
    • Any business who has not demonstrated they meet the revenue requirements of a minimum of $50,000 and not exceeding $8 million
    • Any business whose employee count exceeds 250 W2 employees
    • Any business that has not clearly demonstrated the impact of COVID-19 on their business and how the requested project funding is in response to that impact.[2]
  2. After the administrative review remaining applications will be assigned to a caller who will work with the applicant to get documents to support the projected project[3], remove any requested projects or items that do not meet the grant criteria and determine a final request amount and project plan.
  3. After the caller has signed off on the application it will go through a certification review. This process will score the applications based on the highest impact to the business and the county, will review how previous local, State, and Federal funding has been used by the business, and make a final determination on which applications will receive funding until all funds have been expended.

[1] EXAMPLE: If the $4,940,000 were divided by all $50,000 projects the total number of businesses funded would be 98.8. As with all previous County grant programs, remaining funds are returned to the County’s general ARPA funds and will NOT be distributed beyond the guidelines of this grant.

[2] Businesses who provide a list of projects where some are eligible and others are not will not be disqualified at this round, but are subject to a change to their proposal in the second review stage.

[3] Documents could include a more detailed budget, invoices or MOUs for purchases, but will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

The fund is now closed for applications. Selected grant recipients are listed below:

Please note:

  • Business names are spelled exactly as they were entered on the application form. No edits were made to the received applications.
  • In the coming weeks, selected businesses will receive an additional email from our team that will have instructions for accepting the grant award before funds are disbursed.
  • IMPORTANT: If your business was awarded a grant, please note that you may now begin purchasing those items that were approved for your grant request proof of purchase price documents. Please also note that you will be required to provide receipts that match the project as it was submitted and the total amount approved.

A Message from Loudoun Economic Development Executive Director Buddy Rizer:

We wanted to provide this important update to all applicants of the Loudoun County Business Reinvestment and Recovery Fund. This $4.9 million-dollar fund was created by the Board of Supervisors as part of their ongoing efforts to support our business community as we work to reinvest, recover, and reinvent in the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Across the two days the portal was open, we received 768 applications from businesses of all shapes, sizes, industries and locations across the county. The response to this opportunity was both exhilarating and humbling. The projects within those applications show the dedication of the Loudoun business community to resiliency, recovery and growth.

The team at the Department of Economic Development (DED) is working diligently to review every application. In addition to DED staff, the application review process includes reviews by the Commissioner of the Revenue, the Incorporated Towns, and other County staff. Because the response was so high, we want to make sure we take the necessary time to review applications, particularly in this first phase with care and concern for the effort made and the goals of the grant program.

Frequently Asked Questions

I previously received CARES Act and/or ARPA funding from the county or my town. Am I eligible for this?

Yes. If you received general COVID-19 business relief funding from Loudoun County or its incorporated towns, you are eligible to apply for this as well.

Will I have to pay taxes on this grant?

Yes. The IRS considers business grants as revenue for tax purposes. The money from the grant should be included when calculating the business’s taxable income. If your business receives funding and still operates at a loss this year, then it will not have a taxable income because it operated at a loss.

I'm having technical trouble applying. What should I do?

This is a web-based form only. It is strongly encouraged that you use the latest browser version of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox in order to apply. Applicants using Safari may have difficulty signing up.

Although the application can be completed on mobile devices, we recommend using a desktop computer for the best experience.

If you started an application and forgot your password, please click this link to have an email sent to you that will contain a link to reset your password: Forgot your password?

If you complete the application, including all required fields, press Submit and DO NOT see a confirmation message on the screen, then your application has not been successfully submitted. Please contact LoudounBiz@loudoun.gov and we will do our best to help.

If you do not have access to high-speed internet, please visit the parking lots of the Middleburg, Purcellville or Lovettsville libraries for access to free, high-speed internet.

Can I save my application and return later?

Yes. The form allows users to save their progress and return later. However, applications will be considered in the order that they were received. Delaying the submission of an application could impact your consideration for receiving funding.

Can I apply for multiple locations and/or multiple businesses?

Yes, please create just one username and password for multiple businesses that you are applying for. Each business must have a separate Business Reinvestment and Recovery Grant Application under your account. You may only apply for one project per business, and each business must have a separate EIN or SSN.

While logged into the application portal, click the “+Add Another” to create a new Business Reinvestment and Recovery Grant Application  attached to your Personal Profile.

How will my submitted information be used?

Submitted information will be used to determine the eligibility of the business applicant. Additional communication with Loudoun County Government staff will be to verify the information provided.

Information submitted for this grant becomes public record and subject to requests in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act. We cannot exclude anyone’s submitted information from that process.

What are the next steps?

Once successfully submitted, applications will be reviewed to confirm eligibility on a rolling basis.

Loudoun Economic Development staff will contact you by phone or email if there are any clarifications needed during the review process.

After your application has been fully certified, it will be transferred to the Economic Development Authority for payment. At that time you will be asked to provide a W-9, ACH form and banking document (such as a voided check or bank letter) to complete the payment process.

What does “good standing” mean for eligibility?

Good standing is determined by the jurisdiction in which your business is located. Good standing can include, but is not limited to, having a valid business license and being in compliance with all other reporting and taxation requirements of that jurisdiction.

Can I get this information in another language?

What is a capital expense versus and operating expense?

An operating expense is an expense required for the day-to-day functioning of a business. A capital expense is an expense a business incurs to create a benefit in the future. The BRRG will fund capital expenses of a business where that expense is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the individual business and/or industry of the business.

What do revenue and expenses mean for purposes of the grant application?

For purposes of the BRRG, revenue is the money that comes in to your business and expenses are the money you pay out.
