Request from Congressman Riggleman's Office

3/19/2020

Congressman Riggleman is very concerned with the effect that COVID19 will have on small businesses, as well as other businesses and constituents in the 5th District.  In light of this, he has created a COVID19 page on his website at https://riggleman.house.gov/issues/covid-19.

In order for Virginia to qualify to receive SBA assistance, we need to have as many small businesses as possible, in all localities in Virginia, send an email to commerce.trade@governor.virginia.gov with the Subject: Disaster Area Request, providing the name of business, address, contact information, and assistance requested, and specifically request your locality be designated as a disaster area. In addition, we are asking that businesses also complete Congressman Riggleman’s form on his COVID19 page https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSegrLGy8KNnQ-rFs7BLEuxffJYKE8XRDHDxpLNgXABB4bMhTQ/viewform so our office can keep track of the assistance that is being requested in the 5th District.

Congressman Riggleman and staff are continuing to monitor this situation very closely and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our district offices at (434) 973-9631 and (434) 791-2596 or go to https://riggleman.house.gov/issues/covid-19
