The Northwest Tennessee Development District provides a network for technical assistance and resources in response to request from local communities in our District. The Development District concerns itself with the total social, economic and environmental well-being of the area. The goals are:

  • to assist local governments in researching, obtaining and administering state and federal funding;
  • to enhance the quality of life in Northwest Tennessee;
  • to bring together as many resources as possible in an effort to keep senior citizens active, healthy, and in an independent setting.
