The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) is a regional economic development agency representing a unique partnership of federal, state and local government. Established by an act of Congress in 1965, the Commission is comprised of the governors on the 13 Appalachian States and a federal co-chair, who is appointed by the president. Local participation is provided through multi-county local development districts (LDD) with support from community, business and civic leaders. Each year Congress appropriates funds for Commission program, which ARC allocated among its member states. The governors draw up annual state Appalachian strategies and select projects for approval by the federal co-chair. ARC has made investments in the essential elements of economic development to include safe and efficient highway systems, education, job-training and healthcare; water and sewer systems and entrepreneurial development.
