The City of Newport News and its Economic Development Authority have loan programs for small businesses ranging from $2,000 up to $250,000.
These loans and incentives provide support to companies creating jobs and making capital investments in the City and may be used to purchase fixed assets, inventory and working capital.
Another incentive available is the Façade Improvement Grant Program, providing matching grant funds to assist with exterior updates, previously featured in Newport News Now
