How often can I apply?

There is no set limit to the number of times a property owner may apply; however, to ensure maximum fairness and accessibility to the program, property owners who receive a FIG must wait 36 months after the completion of their first project before applying for subsequent grants. If you have any questions, please call 757-926-8428. A Department of Development representative will be happy to assist you.
