The Virginia Enterprise Zone (VEZ) Program is a state and local partnership and a critical tool in supporting business expansion in Newport News.
The City of Newport News is home to two Enterprise Zones and continues to be a top program user in the state, leveraging a significant share of grant dollars set aside to support the growth of qualifying businesses.
All of the City’s industrial and business parks are within the Enterprise Zones, as are a significant number of Newport News businesses. For maps of the zones, visit www.nnva.gov/DocumentCenter/Home/View/9151.
