COVID-19: How TVA Is Helping the Valley

Since the TVA Act was first signed in 1933, our job has been to help the people of the Valley through times of trouble. Now, we’re doing what we can to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

TVA often says it is dedicated to the three “Es”: low-cost, reliable energy; environmental stewardship; and economic development. But above and beyond all that we are absolutely devoted to the welfare of the 10 million people of this vibrant region, as is reflected in our mission: serving the people of the Tennessee Valley to make life better.

Now, we’re doing that by helping to stop the spread of COVID-19. Below are just a few of our volunteer efforts. Check back for more!
