The Economic Development Administration has recently switched to a quarterly review process for applications to some of its programs. The Public Works, Economic Adjustment and Global Climate Change Mitigation Incentive Fund investments applications are now be reviewed on a quarterly basis, and the next quarterly deadline for submitting EDA grant applications to these programs is June 10th, 2011.

EDA will continue to accept applications at any time, but will evaluate those applications in quarterly funding cycles. In order for an application to be considered in a given funding cycle it must be received by the deadline. The deadlines will generally fall approximately two to three weeks prior to the beginning of each quarter in the federal fiscal year.

Short-Term and Partnership Planning, Local Technical Assistance, and University Center investments will continue to be funded on their current schedules. Awards from supplemental appropriations will be awarded based on priorities and procedures published in the applicable federal funding opportunity notice.

For applicable programs on quarterly cycle, all applications received on or before June 10th will be considered, and applicants will be informed of their status within 20 days of the deadline. Any applications received after June 10th will be considered in the next quarter’s funding cycle on September 15, 2011.

You can find more information on EDA’s quarterly review process on the EDA’s website. Or, you can contact your local EDA office directly.
