[Webinar Recording]: EDA Cares Act Funding

On May 19, 2020, the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) and officials from the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA) hosted a webinar to share information about the $1.5 billion in supplemental funding that EDA received in the CARES Act, which was enacted on March 27 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

EDA experts featured during this webinar discussed the EDA Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) addendum that guides the administration of this supplemental EDA funding. EDA staff also explained the non-competitive funding process through which Economic Development Districts (EDDs), EDA Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) operators, and EDA University Centers may be eligible to receive expedited funding.
