Area Development Districts Home

The Joint Funding Administration (JFA) was initiated as a way to unify funding to the Area Development Districts (ADDs) from multiple sources (both state and federal). It originally included federal agencies such as the Economic Development Administration (EDA), Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and state agencies including the Department for Local Government (DLG), the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, and the Justice Cabinet. As the years passed, various agencies have dropped out of JFA, most recently the ARC. Current participants include DLG, EDA, and CDBG.
