CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Now West Virginia businesses can turn to one comprehensive source to find economic development resources available in the state. The West Virginia Business Resource Directory catalogues a concise summary of business incentive and development programs.
The directory is a project of the West Virginia Development Office (WVDO).
“This is the first time the state has assembled such a comprehensive directory of business resources,” said Commerce Secretary Keith Burdette. “The Business Resource Directory will help West Virginia businesses quickly and easily connect with available programs that fit their specific needs. It will also provide another tool economic developers and state agencies can use to promote the business-friendly climate in West Virginia. We will continue to update the directory as new and better information becomes available.”
The programs are grouped in statewide and regional categories. Within the categories, the programs are organized by type: Business-to-Business; Community Support; Education and Training; Financial Assistance; Human Resources Assistance; and Technical Assistance. The directory provides a concise summary of each program’s essential facts, such as contact person, application process and eligibility.
The West Virginia Business Resource Directory is available in an online version and as a downloadable PDF at www.wvdo.org/BusinessResourceDirectory.
