The Made in Fairfax Directory, created by the created by the Community Revitalization Section of the Fairfax County Department of Planning and Development, features dozens of artisans who create a wide variety of products all around the county.

Ali Morris at Visit Fairfax (Fairfax County, VA), the county’s official tourism and hospitality promotion group, created the Fairfax County 2021 Holiday Gift Guide to showcase gift-worthy products created right here and the artisans behind the creations. You can shop by these categories: art and designs; body; chocolate; coffee; food; kids; pets; stocking stuffers; textiles; wine, beer and spirits. Check it out!

Virginia Employers, have you applied for the Return to Earn Grant Program?

Through funding from Governor Northam’s Office, the Return to Earn Grant Program, will offer funding support to eligible Virginia small businesses to provide new hires with up to $500 to support their transition back into the workforce.

This initiative will reimburse up to $500 that a qualifying small business pays directly to a new employee hired after May 31, 2021. Funds will only be reimbursed to businesses for new hires in positions that pay at least $15 per hour (tips included) and that qualify as W-2 employment, either full- or part-time. As of August 31, 2021, the new hire receiving the hiring bonus must have been previously unemployed for one month (30 calendar days) or longer as attested to by the new hire.

For additional information on requirements and to apply for grant funding, small businesses should contact their local workforce development board. Funds will only be reimbursed once they have been fully paid to the new hire.
