Our 15 Area Development Districts (ADDs) work to advance local, state, and regional priorities.



Our strategic mission is simple: We strive to foster regional strategies, solutions and partnerships that improve the overall quality of life for the citizens of Kentucky.

For over 40 years, our 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, governed by 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.
