In 2004 the agency expanded its jurisdictions to incorporate the counties of Charlotte and Mecklenburg. The name was then changed to Tri-County Community Action Agency, Inc., and the board of directors was re-structured to include representation from the three political jurisdictions.
Tri-County Community Action Agency has also partnered with the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center (SVHEC), and the South Central Workforce Investment Board to form the Tri-County Collaborative.

Today, the agency employs over 70 employees with an operating budget of over $3.5 million dollars.
