About the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs:

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA) is a state agency that partners with leaders at the local level to positively impact and enhance the quality of life in Alabama communities through dozens of federal and state grant programs, surplus property, and water resource management.

ADECA’s grant programs support and fund local initiatives that communities often would not be able to afford on their own and improve many facets of life through community and economic development. ADECA programs help address critical infrastructure needs like water, sewer, and broadband; provide law enforcement equipment and support for victims of crime; build new trails and recreational features; and assist with energy efficiency that lowers energy costs.

ADECA is an agency of partnership and action, working every day to impact Alabama communities by awarding hundreds of millions of dollars in grants annually and tackling pressing issues and community needs.
