Virginia's e-Region includes Lee, Wise, Scott, Buchanan, Russell, Tazewell and Dickenson counties and the City of Norton. The Virginia Coalfield Economic Development Authority - VCEDA - operates several unique incentive and financing programs to encourage new job creation and economic diversification.

Financing is based in part upon the number of new jobs created, wage rates and amount of private investment
