Dear Colleague:

In response to your many questions from last Friday’s webinar, An Update of the CARES Act, on how to apply for EDA grants, please be sure to join us today – Friday, May 29th, – for a special members-only webinar.  This webinar will provide a step-by-step tutorial on how to access funds made available via the CARES Act – $1.5 billion-through EDA.  In this webinar, you will:

  • Review the application for funds distributed through the Economic Development Administration (EDA) for economic development organizations to engage in projects related to COVID-19 recovery
  • Be instructed on how to access the application, what materials will be needed, and on what projects are eligible

Whether you are an expert or have not applied for EDA funds before, you are guaranteed to learn something new about this process, as the webinar speakers have a long history of working with the EDA, and will be available to answer all of your questions.

We strongly encourage you all to apply for this funding.

Please continue to stay safe, happy, and healthy during these times.

Sincerely,
