BREAKING NEWS: Region gets state funds
Program encourages cooperation
Wednesday, December 11, 2013
The Southern Virginia Regional Alliance, which includes Martinsville and Henry and Patrick counties, has been awarded $50,000 through a Building Collaborative Communities program.
The funding was announced this morning by Gov. Bob McDonnell.
The Southern Virginia alliance was one of three groups to receive funds.
“Building Collaborative Communities encourages cooperation between communities to reach common goals,” McDonnell said. “Since the inception of this program, we have seen great regional partnerships created and fostered through this program, as well as the involvement from the private sector, community organization and various other regional organizations.”
Other localities in the Southern Virginia alliance are Halifax and Pittsylvania counties and Danville.
Other groups receiving funds were the Northern Neck Planning District Commission and the Roanoke Regional Partnership.
