Living Wage Virginia is a coalition of local programs across the state working to recognize employers who are already paying their employees a living wage, urge consumers to patron area businesses that provide living wages, and encourage employers who are not currently paying a living wage to raise their wages.

Each of our programs has a different set of criteria, based on the cost of living in the local area. To apply to the Charlottesville, Northern Virginia, Harrisonburg-Rockingham, or Richmond programs, please select the appropriate program below.


If you have businesses located in two or more of these locations, or you have businesses outside of these locations, please use our Virginia-wide application so that we can certify as many of your locations as possible. Access the application here.
