EDA funds 22 projects to support economic development in Oregon in 2018


Oregon ranks sixth among US States with US Economic Development Administration (EDA) awarding 22 grants to fund economic development projects in the state in 2018.

The EDA is a federal government agency that focuses exclusively on economic development. The agency solicits applications for funding in order to support construction, non-construction planning, technical assistance, and revolving loan fund projects under the agency's Public Works and the Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA) programs. Grants made under these programs are designed to advance economic development in distressed communities.

17 of the grants awarded for Oregon projects were a part of the planning program - more than any other program.
