Steel Valley Authority

Incorporated in 1986 by the City of Pittsburgh and 11 other riverfront municipalities within the Mon-Valley region, Steel Valley Authority (SVA) is a cross-jurisdictional governmental authority aiming to retain and revitalize the region’s economic base.  To do so, SVA’s work falls into three key areas: providing technical assistance to at-risk companies; promoting responsible capital investment; and building sustainable communities.  SVA’s Pittsburgh Clean and Green Initiative, part of its Building Sustainable Communities program, seeks to create worker ownership opportunities across the Pittsburgh region.  As a first step, it is currently exploring the development of a center that could provide technical assistance, early stage capital, and training to new co-op enterprises.
