Potential Payday from EDA Funding
The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) is requesting applications for their Public Works and Economic Development Facilities Program. Funding is available to develop public works projects such as water, wastewater, street or stormwater infrastructure projects. Applicants must meet specific distress criteria. Competitive projects are tied to job creation.
Depending on the level of distress, the federal match is between 50 and 100 percent. Typical awards range from $500,000 to $2,000,000. Applications are due September 14, 2012. If you have questions or would like to discuss potential project ideas, please contact Jill Trevino.
