JMT Technology Group has completed a project with the Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission to rejuvenate its public-facing website to reflect the dynamic image that the Commission wishes to project. The website will be used as a platform for publicity, to communicate press releases and news, information about grants, and to provide a link to an application portal for grant applications. JMT performed the requirements elicitation, design, development, testing, and implementation of the website and training of staff.

“We are very happy with the new website that JMT Technology Group developed for the Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission. Our new site is faster, more secure, and is now much easier for our partners and constituents to find the information they are looking for. Our new web address, revitalizeva.org, represents our mission well,” says Chris Piper of the Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission.

The site can be found at https://www.revitalizeva.org/.
