FTAAAD's Fundraising Efforts Support Local Aging Issues
The First Tennessee Development District/First Tennessee Area Agency on Aging and Disability administers programs that address some of the most crucial social issues in Northeast Tennessee, including food insecurity and substandard housing in older low-income adults. State and federal funding for these programs is limited, resulting in long waiting lists for services and missed opportunities for FTDD to make a greater impact on the residents of the region.
To mitigate these funding limitations the FTDD Foundation, the nonprofit 501(c)3 arm of the Development District, was created to pursue private fundraising and grant awards that allow FTDD to serve greater numbers of Northeast Tennesseans in need.
