COVID - 19 Resources!



The impacts of COVID-19 on the global economy have been well documented. The Advantage Valley region has not been immune to these impacts; however, we are blessed to be in an area of natural beauty that is not densely populated, and as a result, has experienced a lower number of cases than our surrounding states in the mid-Atlantic region. With government leaders listening to the science, and keenly focused on the health and well-being of our residents, West Virginia’s economic re-entry has been prudent and measured. We believe that this pandemic does not define our communities but our response does. To that end, we have launched a new entrepreneurial program for high growth potential sectors. We are supporting individuals who are seizing these opportunities and leading the economic resurgence of our region. While supporting startups, responding to the needs of our existing businesses is also foundational to our continued economic growth. Given the challenges of our times, the Advantage Valley region has chosen to respond in a manner that reflects the resiliency of our people, businesses, and communities.


Advantage Valley has gathered relevant resources for business in the region.
