[Webinar Recording]: EDA Cares Act Funding

Posted on: May 20th, 2020 by Brett Schwartz

On May 19, 2020, the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) (http://www NULL.nado NULL.org) and officials from the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA) (http://www NULL.eda NULL.gov) hosted a webinar to share information about the $1.5 billion in supplemental funding that EDA received in the CARES Act (https://www NULL.eda NULL.gov/coronavirus/), 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) (https://www NULL.grants NULL.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity NULL.html?oppId=321695) 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.

Press play on the video above to watch the recording.  (Note:  Audio difficulties caused the webinar to conclude early; however, all presentations and most of the Q and A portion were conducted and recorded)
