The 15 Area Development Districts (ADDs) comprise a statewide network of multi-county planning and development organizations working along multi-jurisdictional lines to advance local, state, and regional priorities.
The strategic mission is simple: We strive to foster regional strategies, solutions and partnerships that achieve sustainable economic growth and improve the overall quality of life for the citizens of Kentucky.
For over 40 years, 15 ADDs have evolved from conduits for regional and local economic development planning to catalysts of change in almost all aspects of life throughout the state and in our individual regions.
By working in concert with our federal and state officials, our local government shareholders, and our private and nonprofit sector partners, ADDs have worked with the sole intent of serving Kentuckians. Our pledge is to make the effort and investments needed today to make the state even better tomorrow.
