About Us

Founded in 2003, Hampton Roads Ventures (HRV) is a Rural Community Development Entity committed to attracting private investment capital into innovative economic community development projects primarily in severely distressed rural areas.  Utilizing New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) funding, HRV focuses on supporting, growing and sustaining healthy rural communities and providing low-income residents with access to quality jobs; affordable, nutritious food; and comprehensive healthcare and wellness services. Working closely with local businesses and community leaders, HRV identifies investment opportunities that will serve as a catalyst for additional private sector investment and development.

Staffed by experienced community economic development professionals, HRV is extremely sensitive to the unique opportunities, challenges and constraints faced by underserved rural communities.
