Intergovernmental Affairs

Mission

Provide support services for the Governor, Cabinet, and Virginia agencies in the formulation and implementation of policies, procedures, and programs that support and promote the broad objectives of the Commonwealth through the coordination of efforts with the President’s Administration, the Virginia Congressional Delegation, and others in Washington, D.C.

What We Do

The Virginia Office of Intergovernmental Affairs (VOIA) serves as the liaison between the Commonwealth and the United States Congress, the White House, federal agencies, and other states and territories—facilitating communication with the Governor. The D.C. office also coordinates with state agencies to develop the Commonwealth’s federal priorities and appropriations requests.

The Intergovernmental Affairs office also monitors federal legislative issues and advocates on behalf of the Commonwealth. It works with state policy advisors to determine how federal legislation will impact state programs and priorities.

Additionally, the Virginia Office of Intergovernmental Affairs helps to identify federal grant opportunities for the Commonwealth.
