Washington County is part of the Kingsport–Bristol (TN)–Bristol (VA) Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is a component of the Johnson City–Kingsport–Bristol, TN-VA Combined Statistical Area – commonly known as the "Tri-Cities" region.

In 1999, Abingdon, Virginia combined efforts with Bristol, VA/TN, Johnson City, TN, and Kingsport, TN to compete as a combined Tri-Cities area in the All-America City competition. The effort worked and our Tri-Cities region of NE Tennessee and SW Virginia was awarded the title of one of ten All-America Cities.

Virginia Community Capital

Virginia Community Capital

VCC was established in 2006 as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI)with an initial $15 million investment under Governor Mark R. Warner. The goal was to leverage that initial investment for an economic return to underserved areas. More than $2.4 million was originated across our first seven real estate development loans.

As a mission-driven organization, Virginia Community Capital aims to create jobs, energize places, and promote enhanced quality of life for Virginians.

Through the power of partnerships and leverage, we have turned that $15 million seed investment into over $1.8 billion of impact in Virginia. Over the years, VCC has become known for its ability to combine the resources of national, state, and local social investors into successfully funded projects. We are, many times, the "first in" on projects designed to positively impact their community.

We are proud of our partnership with the Washington County Chamber of Commerce through the Noon Knowledge and Washington County Business Challenge programs. This collaboration has helped so many in Washington County.
