About the Tennessee Valley Corridor: The Tennessee Valley Corridor was organized in 1995 to convene representatives from government, academia, and business to collaborate on ways to bring greater attention to and support for the important federal missions and related economic development in the region. The Tennessee Valley Corridor (TVC), now represents a footprint of 12 congressional districts in Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, Virginia, and North Carolina working together to advance the TVC’s missions and to encourage on-going collaboration in energy, science, environment, space, national security, and education.
