GO Virginia stands for Growth and Opportunity. The GO Virginia initiative is managed within nine regions. Each region encourages cooperation among businesses, education, and government entities to enhance economic collaboration, private sector growth and opportunity, and alignment of workforce development programs with employer’s needs.
Let’s unleash Virginia’s business leaders, educators and local officials—even whole regions—by providing financial incentives to collaborate to increase high paying private sector jobs, instead of competing against each other.
GROW Capital Jobs Foundation is the support organization for Region 4 of GO Virginia, a statewide initiative to improve the Commonwealth’s economy by increasing the number of high paying, private sector jobs. Higher paying jobs are a leading indicator of overall business growth and development.
Region 4 represents the Crater Planning District Commission and the Richmond Region Planning District Commission as shown on the map.
