Grant Opportunity: Economic Development Administration Public Works Program

EDA’s Public Works program helps distressed communities revitalize, expand, and upgrade their physical infrastructure, enabling communities to attract new industry; encourage business expansion; diversify local economies; and generate or retain long-term, private-sector jobs and investment through the acquisition or development of land and infrastructure improvements. Program investments help transition communities from distressed to competitive by developing key public infrastructure, such as technology-based facilities that utilize distance learning networks, smart rooms, and smart buildings; multitenant manufacturing and other facilities; business and industrial parks with fiber optic cable; and telecommunications and development facilities. EDA also invests in traditional public works projects, including water and sewer systems improvements, industrial parks, business incubator facilities, expansion of port and harbor facilities, skill-training facilities, and brownfields redevelopment.

Eligibility: Nonprofits, institutions of higher education, county governments, special district governments, city or township governments. See website for complete list.
