About Us

The Upper Cumberland Development District is a governmental agency created by the Tennessee General Assembly to administer regional programs to the fourteen counties of the Upper Cumberland region of
Tennessee: Cannon, Clay, Cumberland, DeKalb, Fentress, Jackson, Macon, Overton, Pickett, Putnam, Smith, Van Buren, Warren and White. Our programs include Area Agency on Aging and Disability, Cumberland Area Investment Corporation, Economic and Community Development, Housing and Family Services and Workforce Development. For over fifty years, our organization has been serving the residents of this region by providing solutions through regional cooperation and it is our belief that the fourteen counties, along with the many municipalities contained within, are made stronger through regional cooperation and shared resources.
