Tennessee's Development Districts are planning and economic development organizations owned and operated by its counties, cities, and towns. The Districts foster intergovernmental cooperation on growth and development issues of regional and statewide concern.
Tennessee's Development Districts promote effective utilization of resources to address a multitude of issues related to economic development, transportation and infrastructure planning, housing and community development, and many others.
The Tennessee Development District Association (TDDA) serves as a forum for collaboration between districts to help them better serve the needs of the regions they represent.
Building A Better Tennessee
All nine Tennessee Development Districts are members of the TDDA, and all work together to share resources and information, and to find solutions to a diverse range of problems facing the citizens of Tennessee.
