Building Partnerships to Improve our Region
The TJPDC Corporation is an entity that is intentionally connected to the mission and activities of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC), and was created to further the mission of the TJPDC by taking on roles that support and contribute to the TJPDC.
The mission of the TJPDC Corporation is to promote regional cooperation and collaboration between government, private sector and community organizations to improve the quality of life for citizens in the planning district (the City of Charlottesville and Counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson).
The Corporation assists community efforts in the areas of housing, environment, community development, transportation, workforce development, economic development, the arts, and universal design. It actively supports the work of the TJPDC by broadening the funding base for TJPDC initiatives and acting as an ‘implementation arm’ for selected projects.
The Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC) incorporated the TJPDC Corporation in order to establish it as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. The TJPDC Corporation Board was formed with 11 Board members, six of whom were members of the TJPD Commission, representing each of the six member localities.
The board began meeting regularly in June 2010. TJPDC Corporation submitted Form 1023 to the IRS to apply for non-profit status on May 7, 2011 and received its determination letter from the IRS on January 31, 2012. The TJPDC Corporation is intended to be tied to the mission and activities of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC).
