The Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve and advance historic downtown Astoria’s culture and character through inspired partnerships and community engagement to support a vibrant and resilient economic future for all Astorians.
ADHDA requires program funding and volunteer support to carry out its mission. ADHDA raises nearly all of its annual budget through membership dues and special events.

ADHDA has secured several hundred thousand dollars in historic preservation grants for downtown buildings. The organization carries out its mission using the Main Street Approach.
