Delta Regional Authority

The Delta Regional Authority works to improve the lives of the nearly 10 million people who reside in the 252 Delta counties and parishes across eight states. Led by the Delta Regional Authority Board comprised of the Federal Co-Chairman-appointed by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate-and the governors of the eight states, the Delta Regional Authority fosters partnerships throughout the region as it works to improve the Delta economy. 

With investments from the States’ Economic Development Assistance Program to improve transportation and basic infrastructure, train a skilled workforce, and develop the small business and entrepreneurial environments, the Delta Regional Authority supports job creation and retention. Initiatives such as the Healthy Delta Initiative, Delta Leadership Institute, and Innovative Readiness Training support community development efforts and ensure a healthy population in the Delta region.

Delta Leadership Institute

Delta Leadership Institute (DLI) is designed to improve the decisions made by leaders across the region by broadening their understanding of regional issues, creating a corps of leaders with a regional and national perspective. The motivation for the creation of this executive academy and delta leadership network under the Delta Leadership umbrella was, in fact, to have an “army” of well-informed community leaders who understand not only their issues but the Region’s issues. To that end, those leaders who have participated in and continue to participate in the Delta Leadership Network (DLN) become the voice of the Region and for the Authority. DLN is the body of alumni who have successfully completed the year-long DLI Executive Academy program and continue to communicate in order to foster and strengthen cross-cultural, inter-governmental bonds in the region.
