Agenda

Opportunities at NCNMEDD

To combat difficulties during the COVID-19 pandemic our office has compiled a list of resources available to community members, governments, and small business owners.

EDA Funding Opportunities

 

PWEAA:  EDA’s Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA) programs provide economically distressed communities and regions with comprehensive and flexible resources to address a wide variety of economic needs. 

 

This opportunity can support construction, non-construction, planning, technical assistance, and revolving loan fund projects. This program leverages existing regional assets to support economic development strategies to advance economic prosperity in distressed communities, including those negatively impacted by changes to the coal economy.  There are no submission deadlines under this opportunity. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis.

Research and National Technical Assistance (RNTA):  this NOFO makes $1.5 million available for Research and Evaluation projects and $1.0 million available for National Technical Assistance (NTA) projects.

Planning and Local Technical Assistance:  through its Planning and Local Technical Assistance programs, EDA assists eligible recipients in developing economic development plans and studies designed to build capacity and guide the economic prosperity and resiliency of an area or region. Only EDA-designated District Organizations and Indian Tribes are eligible recipients for Partnership Planning awards. 

Build to Scale:  The Build to Scale Program builds regional economies through scalable startups through the Venture Challenge and Capital Challenge.  The FY22 Venture Challenge seeks to advance technology-based economic development and through regional innovation ecosystems that promote the commercialization of new technologies, strengthen growing industry clusters, and lead to the expansion of high-paying economic opportunities in communities, regions, or combinations of regions.  The FY22 Capital Challenge seeks to increase access to capital, particularly in communities where there is a limited supply of equity-based funding and a demonstrated opportunity to invest in technology-based businesses aligned with growing industry and technology clusters.  Due 11:59 pm June 13, 2022.  


If you have a project in mind, or questions about the program or eligibility, please reach out to Felicity Fonseca, 505-356-9098, for an appointment.
