CAPCOG assists with EDA Public Works Program grants

Friday, February 06, 2015

Local governments seeking U.S. Economic Development Administration grant projects can contact the Capital Area Council of Governments for assistance in applying to the EDA’s Public Works Program.

The EDA designated CAPCOG as the economic development district for CAPCOG’s 10-county region. Serving as the district, CAPCOG provides its local entities with technical assistance to develop and submit applications for EDA funding grant projects that strive to increase regional economic opportunities.

EDA’s Public Works Program supplies funds to communities to revitalize, expand or upgrade their physical infrastructure to attract new industry; encourage business expansion; diversify local economies; and generate or retain long-term, private sector jobs. It also can be used for acquisition or development of land and infrastructure investments needed to establish or expand industrial or commercial enterprises.

Most program projects should offer a 50 percent local match. Application scores are affected by having greater local and private matching funds and more job creation benefits.

The next two funding cycle deadlines are March 12, 2015 and June 12, 2015.
