FY 2011 Planning and Local Technical Assistance Programs Opportunity: Pursuant to PWEDA, EDA announces general policies and application procedures for grant-based investments under the Planning and Local Technical Assistance Programs. These programs will help communities develop the planning and technical expertise to support communities and regions in their comprehensive, entrepreneurial, and innovation-based economic development efforts. Resulting in increased private investment and higher-skill, higher-wage jobs in areas experiencing substantial and persistent economic distress, these programs are designed to enhance the competitiveness of regions. EDA's Planning and Local Technical Assistance Programs are two of the six economic development assistance programs the agency operates under PWEDA. Under the Planning Program, EDA provides assistance to eligible recipients to create regional economic development plans in order to stimulate and guide the economic development efforts of a community or region. EDA's Local Technical Assistance Program helps eligible recipients fill the knowledge and information gaps that may prevent leaders in the public and nonprofit sectors in economically distressed regions from making optimal decisions on local economic development issues. Please see the FY2011 Planning and Local Technical Assistance Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO), to which a link is provided below, for more information on the programs.
