*The Hampton Roads Workforce Council has fully obligated all of our Virginia Beach Relief Grant funds for training services at this time. We will keep a list of those new Virginia Beach Residents requesting training services under the Grant, in the event that additional funds become available.

The Virginia Beach Pandemic Relief Partnership

The Virginia Beach Pandemic Relief Partnership is a collaboration of United Way of South Hampton Roads, the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore, the Hampton Roads Workforce Council and LISC Hampton Roads funded by the City of Virginia Beach. Helping our community navigate and recover from the challenges created by COVID-19 is our top priority.

The Hampton Roads Workforce Council will support workforce development for displaced workers through education and job training. Short-term training opportunities will focus on high demand industries including:
  • Healthcare
  • Manufacturing
  • Hospitality
  • Skilled trades
  • IT
  • Transportation and logistics

We will also provide opportunities for on-the-job training, incumbent worker training, apprenticeships and cohort training.
