Message from Jim Byard, Jr., Director of ADECA

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA) is committed to our mission:  Building Better Alabama Communities. Through partnerships with local governments, nonprofit groups, state and federal agencies, and other agencies, the men and women of ADECA work every day to improve the quality of life for Alabamians. I am pleased to welcome you to our website, and I invite you to explore our Department’s various program areas and divisions. We are here to serve, so please do not hesitate to contact us.
