Workforce training assistance in Virginia is provided through the Virginia Department of Business Assistance's Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP). VJIP provides customized recruiting and training services to companies that are creating new jobs or experiencing technological change. The Department of Business Assistance assigns one state point-of-contact to coordinate all the resources available to your company. Among your partners will be Virginia's educational and vocational institutions, Workforce Development Centers, Employment Service Providers and more.
Virginia actively works with expanding Virginia employers that create a higher standard of living for Virginians, enhance the local and state economies, and increase revenues to state and local governments. Incentives are Virginia's investment in its economic future and a business decision for both the Commonwealth and the company. As a result, they must make good fiscal sense for all parties.
Designed to target the needs of the company and the development plans of localities and the state, Virginia offers a variety of performance-based incentives. From tax credits to tax exemptions, Virginia continues to demonstrate its willingness to invest in those who invest and reinvest in the Commonwealth.
