Partnering Organizations and Local Advisory Groups

Local advisory groups and community development corporations have been indispensable to Mon Valley Initiative since its foundation in 1988.

These volunteer-led, grassroots organizations in many cases serve as key contacts for MVI staff in the communities that Mon Valley Initiative serves. They help MVI build connections to the communities and they bring potential projects to the MVI board for consideration.

With the help of these CDCs and other groups, MVI is able to implement a diverse range of revitalization strategies that are identified by local residents.

The depth and diversity of MVI’s approach to real estate and community development, housing counseling, public planning and workforce development owes much to the cooperation it receives from its community partners.
