On July 2, 2018, the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) published the FY 2018 Economic Development Assistance Programs (EDAP) notice of funding opportunity.

Under this notice, 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 programs, which includes 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.

Projects funded by these programs will support the DOC Strategic Plan (2018-2022) by, among other things: leading to the creation and retention of jobs and increased private investment, advancing innovation, enhancing the manufacturing capacities of regions, providing workforce development opportunities and growing ecosystems that attract foreign direct investment.

The “EDAP2018” opportunity supersedes the previously published “EDAP-2017” opportunity.
