The Mon Valley Alliance (MVA), when it was formed in 2016, made it its mission to be more involved in the communities it serves and to support shorter term community projects that improve the quality of life for residents and attract new people to the region.
This is evidenced by our current projects, but we realize much work still needs to be done. The MVA is interested in participating in projects that make our communities more livable.

The Mon Valley Alliance plans to give area residents that opportunity – at least the feeling of that opportunity – by making available Mon Valleyopoly, a custom-made board game patterned after the iconic family-oriented board game with a similar-sounding name.
The game, which will be available locally for the Christmas shopping season, will allow players to purchase “deeds” to many businesses within the economic development agency’s focused area, which includes Belle Vernon, Bentleyville, Brownsville, California, Charleroi, Donora, Fallowfield, Elizabeth, Monessen, Monongahela, North Belle Vernon, Rostraver and surrounding communities.

The Mon Valley Alliance (MVA) announced today the election of additional community leaders, filling three of the final five positions of its fifteen-member Board of Directors.
The Mon Valley Alliance (MVA) announced today that the Local Share Account Review Board has recommended an award of $252,000 to support the Charleroi Renaissance Phase 1 project, which would demolish the former Charleroi Football Stadium and prepare the site for a riverfront park.
The former Charleroi Football Stadium project is the result of broad community support and is the signature initiative of five municipalities that joined together to develop a Multi-Municipal Comprehensive Plan, a project also made possible by a previous LSA grant.
As part of this planning, Charleroi, Fallowfield Township, North Charleroi, Speers and Twilight Borough chose to support this singular initiative for this year’s LSA Application. It is their belief that taking underutilized and public safety hazards and transforming them into the attraction of a riverfront park will benefit the residents of all five municipalities and create a draw for visitors to the area.
The LSA review board specifically called out this cooperation as a key in selecting the project for the grant award.
