I would like apply for a grant from the SBA to purchase a building for my business. The building is located in an economically disadvantage in southern Virginia. I would like to purchase this building and use it as for my company's headquarters and a training facility. My plan is as follows: provide training to high school student from 8-12 grade in IT-related skills such as Office, web development, networking, system administration, information assurance; provide internship opportunities with large IT companies, provide skills training to adult learns who want to enter the IT field; offer corporate training; provide train-the-trainer courses; create job opportunities by hiring graduates; The target amount to acquire the building an renovate it is approximately $350,000 plus another $100,000 to renovate it, $50,000 for furniture, computer equipment and staff. I would like to show the historical data of Danville, VA such as the unemployment rate, poor graduation rate, crime rate and poverty rate, and measure that against the opportunities that will be created by the IT training and internship opportunities my company will create.
