The TAP Alliance

Tishomingo, Alcorn, and Prentiss counties in northeast Mississippi have created the TAP Alliance to unify their economic development efforts. The organization’s primary objective is to undertake projects at a regional scale that will benefit all three adjacent counties. Efforts may range from joint marketing campaigns to specific industrial recruitment projects.

Commitment to a regional approach increases the area’s appeal to industries seeking sites for new facilities. Working together and drawing upon assistance from the Tennessee Valley Authority, the three counties can offer greater opportunities and resources than any of them working individually.

The TAP Alliance board of directors comprises two representatives from the Board of Supervisors in each county and one representative from each county’s largest municipality.
