The South County Federation, formerly known as the Federation of Lorton Communities, is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization established to represent the interests of the residents of southeastern Fairfax County. The Federation is an "umbrella" group composed of many homeowners, civic and citizens associations. Representatives from the individual associations meet each month to :
- Facilitate the regular exchange of views and information on local, regional, state and national matters of interest to its members
- Cooperate with and promote activities relating to the common interests of other citizens' associations
- Review land use applications and provide recommendations to the Fairfax County Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors on those applications
Homeowners, civic, and citizen associations within the South County area are invited to be members. The Federation's membership area is bounded on the south by the Occoquan River, on the north by Fort Belvoir, the Fairfax County and Franconia-Springfield Parkways, on the east by the Potomac River, and on the west by Lee Chapel Road. Residents of neighborhoods that do not have a formal association are also invited to join the Federation and participate in its activities through a non-aligned caucus.

Starting in January 2013, The Federation will meet on the second Tuesday of each month, except in August, at 7:30PM in the Media Center of the South County Secondary School , 8501 Silverbrook Road, Lorton, VA. Visitors are welcome to observe our meetings. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 at 7:30 p.m.
In addition to the monthly meetings, various activities, such as the annual Lorton Fourth of July parade are sponsored by the South County Federation.
