Retail Academy

An investment in retail retention and recruitment can increase jobs, local tax revenue and quality of place. We want Tennessee communities to think long term about investing their ARPA dollars in a creative way versus merely spending them. This is the first-time localities have received a direct allocation of cash, and we are confident these communities will use the funding that will have a lasting impact.
