US Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration (EDA) Funding

EDA assists rural and urban areas experiencing high unemployment, low income, or other severe economic distress, such as sudden and severe economic dislocations including: recovery from the economic impacts of natural disasters, the closing of military installations and other Federal facilities, changes in trade patterns, and the depletion of natural resources. The most common use of EDA dollars is within the following programs:

Public Works: EDA investments fund locally-developed public works infrastructure projects to allow communities to establish and support private sector businesses.

Local Technical Assistance: EDA’s local technical assistance grants help to fill the knowledge gaps that inhibit communities from responding to development opportunities or solving specific economic problems. A common purpose of these grants is to determine the feasibility of proposed economic development investments.
