Economic Adjustment Assistance Program

The U.S. Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA) program invested $500 million in American Rescue Plan funding to help plan, build, innovate, and put people into quality jobs in hundreds of communities across the nation. As part of the suite of EDA American Rescue Plan programs, the EAA program is funding 256 grantees that will implement projects in 48 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia to address some of the most pressing economic development challenges in their communities. As a result, these projects are estimated by applicants to garner over $11 billion in private investment and create and retain over 64,000 jobs.
