    Applications open for EDA’s FY 2023 Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance programs

    On March 15, the Economic Development Administration (EDA) published a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for its Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance (PWEAA) program, which counties are directly eligible for.  

    Counties can use funding from PWEAA for investments that support construction, non-construction, planning, technical assistance, and revolving loan fund projects under EDA’s Public Works program and Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA) program.

    The Public Works program provides resources to meet the construction and/or infrastructure design needs of communities to enable them to become more economically competitive. Examples of projects that have been funded previously include, but are not limited to:

    • Acquisition and development of land and improvements for use in public works or other types of development facilities
    • Design and engineering, construction, rehabilitation, alteration, expansion, or improvement of public works, public service, or related development facilities, including related machinery and equipment;
    • Water and sewer system improvements, expansion of port and harbor facilities
    • Construction or expansion of facilities for workforce development
    • Redevelopment of brownfield sites
    • Expansion, construction, or improvements of technology-based facilities and research and Development commercialization centers

    Supported activities under EDA’s EAA program include projects for construction or upgrading of public infrastructure, sectoral partnerships for workforce training, design and engineering, technical assistance, economic recovery strategies, and capitalization or re-capitalization of Revolving Loan Funds (RLF).

    Each project must be consistent with the region’s current Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), or if a CEDS does not exist, an equivalent EDA-accepted regional economic development strategy that meets EDA’s CEDS or strategy requirements.

    EDA is expected to provide up to 3,000 awards, and counties can directly apply for grants up to $30 million. There are no application submission deadlines and applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis until the publication of a new PWEAA NOFO, cancellation of this PWEAA NOFO, or all available funds have been expended. More information on how to apply can be found here, and counties can visit sfgrants.eda.gov to apply.
