EDA’s Streamlined Application Process

Posted on: November 9th, 2015 by Carrie Kissel

During the 2015 NADO Annual Training Conference, Angela Belden Martinez and Nathan Ohle of the U.S. Economic Development Administration reviewed proposed changes to streamline the agency’s grant application process.  These changes are incorporated in the 2016 Federal Funding Opportunity (http://www NULL.grants NULL.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity NULL.html?oppId=279842) (FFO) for Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance Programs.

Among the key changes to the grants processes are a new shorter proposal form which will help EDA determine project eligibility before applicants are required to complete a full application; more intentional staff feedback on proposals; elimination of the ED-900 form in favor of a series of shorter forms that can be used to fit the needs of different program solicitations; and a rolling, rather than quarterly, deadline for applications.  EDA is planning several webinars on the grant processes changes and NADO will provide further details when they become available.
