Another economic boost is expected in Southwest Virginia with the help of a 10 million dollar grant headed by the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy. This would allow developers to use local lands for things like broadband equipment, industrial factories, tourism, clean energy development and agriculture. Some of these sites are located in Wise County. Applications need to be submitted before October 31st.
