Virginia Business: Charlottesville Chamber launches local economic recovery initiative

The Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday announced the launch of Project Rebound, a local economic recovery initiative to address the COVID-19 economic crisis.

The project, hosted by The Chamber and economic offices at the University of Virginia, Albemarle County and the city of Charlottesville, aims to bring together local businesses to discuss challenges of COVID-19’s economic impact and to prepare solutions.

“There’s a lot of people in this community trying to help each other, and there are businesses that are trying to collaborate and partner, and we felt like we had an opportunity to bring all of those ideas together so that we’re not duplicating efforts,” Chamber President and CEO Elizabeth Cromwell said during a news conference held via Zoom teleconferencing Tuesday.
