EDA Recompete Program Informational Webinar

August 10, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm CDT

August 10 at 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm Eastern

The U.S. Economic Development Administration is accepting applications for the Recompete Pilot Program. This $200 million grant program will support economic revitalization in distressed communities across the country. The program targets areas where prime-age employment significantly trails the national average, with the goal to close this gap through flexible, bottom-up investments. EDA will deploy funding through a two-phase competition. Phase 1 investments can be used for strategy development (planning) activities, while Phase 2 investments (average $20 million – $50 million per region) can support a wide range of implementation activities.

Eligible Recipient Type: Eligible applicants include: (i) a unit of local government; (ii) the District of Columbia; (iii) a territory of the United States; (iv) a Tribal government; (v) political subdivisions of a State or other entity, including a special-purpose entity engaged in economic development activities; (vi) a public entity or nonprofit organization, acting in cooperation with the officials of a political subdivision of a State or other entity described in (v); (vii) an economic development district; and (viii) a coalition of any of the above entities that serve or are contained within an eligible geographic area.

Eligible Area: Recompete Pilot Program investments must be located in one of two eligible area types, including meeting certain Prime-Age Employment Gap (PAEG) requirements.
