About the Commission

Funding Sources

The Cumberland Plateau Planning District Commission (CPPDC) receives federal, state and local funding to carry out its mission. Funding sources vary by project and reflect local priorities.

Federal funding comes from agencies such as the Economic Development Administration (EDA), the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) through the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

The Commonwealth of Virginia provides funding through the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).

Each member county contributes annually to the CPPDC in equal amounts.

The CPPDC receives funds for technical assistance and management services provided to the localities through a variety of programs, as well as grant administration.
