Economic Development Funds

TVA’s Economic Development Funds were established to stimulate economic development and leverage capital investment in the TVA power service area. TVA uses them to promote economic expansion and encourage job creation. Committed to ensuring that all businesses have access to the resources they need, TVA dedicates a portion of its loan funds to support minority business development and special opportunities communities.

The loan funds are primarily open to manufacturing companies and other institutions in the Valley, communities, and nonprofit economic development corporations. Loans can be used to fund new industrial plant expansions or retentions, or industrial park development.
