Engage Businesses and Communities

Getting businesses to locate to the Tennessee Valley may be our number one priority—at first. But TVA Economic Development also understands that success requires ongoing support of both businesses and communities.

That’s why we offer a suite of services that can be accessed at any point in a company's or community’s development plan. These draw on the strength of our parent corporation, TVA, and its partners—for we all have a vested interest in seeing our region grow.

Valley Incentive Programs

TVA offers a unique range of economic incentives that will benefit your project from start-up to long-term success in the Valley. Valley Incentive Programs consider both economic and power-system metrics to create a profile of your company’s value to the region, and that, in turn, determines appropriate funding levels. Our goal is to treat you like a VIP by demonstrating concrete benefits now and for multiple years into the future.

Technical Services

TVA engineering and design experts can help you find the best site for your business through conceptual and architectural designs for building on a particular site.

Training and Development

TVA resources help Valley communities become better positioned for new business and industrial development. To discuss a customized training opportunity in your community, please contact Katrina Smith at kmshirley@tva.com or Kristi Brown at kvbrown@tva.gov.

Valley Sustainable Communities Program

Because quality of life is central to an area’s economic growth, it pays to develop in a way that sustains resources. A number of Valley communities are leading the way. For information, please contact Katrina Smith at kmshirley@tva.com.
