The FCEDA, like other economic development organizations in the region, has shifted to working virtually until April 30, and our staff is working full-time with businesses of all kinds to offer assistance and direct them to resources. For direct assistance, email the FCEDA at, or call 703-790-0600 to leave a voice message for our staff.The FCEDA coordinates appointments with SCORE, the nation’s largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors. In-person mentoring sessions and appointments have been suspended through April 17, but SCORE counselors/mentors are available via phone, email and a variety of video-conferencing services.
