Main Street – Tennessee Community Development

OUR PLAN - The Tennessee Main Street Program provides assistance to communities in revitalizing their downtown and central business districts, which are vital components of economic development and job growth.

As part of the Community Development division of the ECD, the Main Street team assists communities across the state with technical assistance and expertise in developing long-term strategies that promote economic growth and development. There is a team of specialists that provides information and assistance in forging public-networking and training opportunities for downtown commercial districts.

In addition, Main Street revitalization is a comprehensive, incremental, self-help economic strategy that focuses on developing public-private partnerships to enhance community livability and job creation while maintaining the historic character of the district.
