Opportunity EDA10142010EDAP: As noted above, this announcement introduces the concept of funding cycles in the context of EDA's grants-making process for the Public Works, Economic Adjustment Assistance, and GCCMIF Programs. In FY 2011, EDA will no longer process projects on a continuing basis and will implement a new process under which the agency will consider applications under the three abovementioned programs at a set time in roughly quarterly funding cycles. This new process will enhance the competitiveness, transparency, and efficiency of EDA's grants-making process, and it will also allow EDA to be more responsive to applicants. Applicants will receive an answer from EDA sooner and will be able to better plan for their economic development needs. EDA will continue to accept applications on a continuing basis, but if an applicant wishes to be considered for a particular funding cycle, EDA must receive a complete application as set out in section V.B. of the FFO by the applicable funding cycle deadline. Eligible applicants have the option of receiving preliminary feedback on an application's technical and competitive merits by submitting the application for an optional preliminary review as described in section V.A. of the FFO.Please see the FY 2011 FFO, to which a link is provided below, for more information on EDA's programs and the agency's new process. Contact the applicable regional office listed in section IX. of the FFO if you have any questions on EDA's process.

- Category Explanation
- This announcement provides information on the Economic Development Administration's (EDA) new application submission requirements and review procedures that will take effect in FY 2011 for EDA's Public Works, Economic Adjustment Assistance, and Global Climate Change Mitigation Incentive Fund (GCCMIF) Programs. Applicants under these programs are encouraged to read the entire FY 2011 Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) announcement dated October 14, 2010 carefully, as some policies, procedures, and requirements have changed from the Economic Development Assistance Programs FFO dated June 22, 2009, which governed grants for part of FY 2009 and all of FY 2010. A link to the FY 2011 FFO is provided below under "FY 2011 Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) Announcement." Please note that applications for financial assistance submitted under EDA's Planning, Partnership Planning, Local Technical Assistance, University Center, and Research and National Technical Assistance Programs are not subject to the procedures and deadlines described in the FY 2011 FFO. The program information and application requirements for these programs will be published in separate FFO announcements. In addition, applications for any supplemental appropriations that EDA receives will not be subject to the deadlines published in this announcement. EDA will publish a separate FFO for any such appropriations. EDA's overall mission is to help distressed communities establish a foundation for durable regional economies throughout the United States. Grants made under EDA's programs will focus on innovation and regional collaboration to create and retain higher wage and sustainable jobs, leverage the flow of private capital, encourage economic development, and strengthen America's ability to compete in the global marketplace. EDA encourages its rural and urban partners around the country to develop initiatives that advance new ideas and creative approaches to address rapidly evolving economic conditions.
