Economic Development Administration (EDA) Grants

Typical EDA grants are in the $500,000 to $1,000,000 range and proposed investments must meet the following criteria:

  • Market-based;
  • Proactive in nature and scope;
  • Look beyond the immediate economic horizon, anticipate economic changes and diversify the local and regional economy;
  • Have a high probability of success;
  • Maximize the attraction of private sector investment and would not otherwise come to fruition absent EDA’s investment;
  • Result in an environment where higher-skill, higher-wage jobs are created;
  • Maximize return on taxpayer investment.
