EDA Seeks FY 2018 Economic Development Assistance Programs (EDAP)

Jul 03, 2018

The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) published the FY 2018 Economic Development Assistance Program (EDAP) Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) (LINK: FY 2018 Economic Development Assistance Programs (EDAP) Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO))

Under this NOFO, EDA solicits applications for construction, non-construction, planning, technical assistance, and revolving loan fund projects under EDA’s Public Works program and Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA) programs, including Assistance to Coal Communities.

Grants and cooperative agreements made under these programs are designed to leverage existing regional assets and support the implementation of economic development strategies that advance new ideas and creative approaches to advance economic prosperity in distressed communities, including those negatively impacted by changes to the coal economy. Funding priorities include creation and retention of jobs, increased private investment, advancing innovation, enhancing manufacturing capacities of regions, providing workforce development opportunities, and growing ecosystems that attract foreign direct investment.
