Reshoring American Jobs is a project funded by the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA). This microsite is a repository of information on the reshoring of previously outsourced U.S.-based business operations geared to economic developers. It is the go-to place to learn about and find resources to support activities encouraging reshoring in communities. Economic developers will find the latest news, case studies, and in-depth research on reshoring activity to help them stay in-the-know on reshoring trends.

This microsite is divided into three sections:

Understanding Reshoring discusses the critical role reshoring plays in strengthening the economy, identifies challenges to reshoring, and highlights lessons learned from communities that have worked with reshored companies.

• Free webinars about reshoring cover a range of topics including Starting the Reshoring Conversation, Matchmaking Reshoring Firms with Domestic Suppliers, and Incentives for Reshoring: Crafting a Competitive Package.

Tools for Reshoring provides resources and best practices in reshoring American jobs to aid economic developers in assisting reshoring companies.

Economic developers will benefit from having this wealth of knowledge at their fingertips. The content on this webpage is a useful toolbox that will help these professionals:

• Access tips on how to engage EDA programming for reshoring activity

• Better understand their role(s) in bringing back industry and jobs to their communities

• Understand the range of challenges and obstacles to reshoring

• Learn how to develop and sustain environments that attract and support reshoring
