Even though the Mon Valley Alliance (MVA) is a new name in the Mon Valley, we have a long, rich history of service to the Mid Mon Valley communities.

MVA serves the Mon Valley with economic, community and workforce development solutions, working together to build better communities.

MVA has programs to help current businesses grow, new businesses relocate to the business friendly Mon Valley as well as startup and business creation programs. If you are looking for space or financing, we can help.

MVA also works to strengthen local communities and reduce blight. Get an update on our current projects or suggest your own.
