WHEREAS, on October 1997, the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia (Council) approved the formation of the Hampton Business Incentives Corporation under the auspices of Hampton Redevelopment and Housing Authority to provide loan guarantees and interest rate buy-downs to help business expansions or start ups in Downtown Hampton and Phoebus (the Program); and

WHEREAS, the Program covers small business costs that are not normally covered by any other City loan program; and the administration for the Program is provided by the Small Business Development Center of Hampton Roads at no cost to the City; and

 

WHEREAS, Council appropriated $300,000.00 from the General Fund balance for this program in 1997 with the understanding that these funds be re-appropriated for the Program every year from the General Fund balance; and

 

WHEREAS, the sum of $225,404.00 is available for re-appropriation.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF HAMPTON, VIRGINIA that the sum of $225,404.00 be re-appropriated from the General Fund balance to the Hampton Redevelopment and Housing Authoritys Hampton Business Incentives Corporation for the purpose of providing financial assistance to retain existing businesses, encourage their expansions, and attract new businesses to locate in Downtown Hampton and Phoebus.
