Communities will be trained and equipped with the tools and education necessary to attract new retailers to their markets, while providing support to their existing local businesses.

Tennessee Development Districts won a National Innovation Award at the “49th Annual National Association of Development Organizations Conference” in San Antonio for launching Retail Academy.
