Posted on: August 3rd, 2021 by NADO Admin

(https://eda NULL.gov/arpa/)On Thursday July 22, the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA) announced (https://www NULL.commerce NULL.gov/news/press-releases/2021/07/us-secretary-commerce-gina-raimondo-announces-3-billion-investment) the release of the Notice of Funding Opportunities (https://eda NULL.gov/funding-opportunities/) (NOFOs) that will guide the administration of the $3 billion in supplemental funding that EDA received through the American Rescue Plan. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo announced a collection of programs – collectively called Investing in America’s Communities – through which EDA will invest the $3 billion to assist communities across the country. This EDA investment is the largest economic development initiative from the Department of Commerce in decades and is intended to help communities across the country to ‘build back better.’ Investing in America’s Communities includes:

  • $1 billion for the Build Back Better Regional Challenge (https://eda NULL.gov/arpa/build-back-better/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=)
  • $500 million for the Good Jobs Challenge (https://eda NULL.gov/arpa/good-jobs-challenge/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=)
  • $500 million for Economic Adjustment Assistance (https://eda NULL.gov/arpa/economic-adjustment-assistance/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=)
  • $100 million for Indigenous Communities (https://eda NULL.gov/arpa/indigenous/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=)
  • $750 million for Travel, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation (https://eda NULL.gov/arpa/travel-tourism/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=)
  • $90 million for Statewide Planning, Research, and Networks (https://eda NULL.gov/arpa/planning-grants/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=)

As part of the collection of programs, EDA is also making a Coal Communities Commitment (https://eda NULL.gov/arpa/coal-communities/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=) and is allocating $300 million to ensure support for these communities as they recover from the pandemic and other economic shifts.
