Program areas:

A wide range of programs fall under the category of community and economic development, and they exist to improve Alabama communities in very specific ways.

Some community needs addressed by Community Development Programs include providing clean water, paving the way for new jobs, eliminating health and safety hazards, and assisting minority-owned businesses.

The Recreation and Conservation Unit administers grants that fund walking trails, playgrounds and other outdoor areas that improve communities.

The Appalachian Regional Commission has been working to improve lives, create new jobs, spur economic development, build roads and infrastructure, advance education and promote wellness in central and north Alabama since its establishment in 1965.

The Delta Regional Authority works to improve many aspects of communities in 20 Alabama counties.
