EDA Construction Grant Post Approval Process Tool for Grant Recipients
The EDA Construction Grant Post Approval Process Tool is an interactive program that assists Recipients through every stage of the post award grant process, from quarterly progress reports, design contract approval, bid documents compliance, bid opening concurrences, financial reimbursements, closeout process, etc. Once an EDA grant is awarded for a construction project, an EDA Engineer/Construction Manager will hold a kickoff meeting with the grantee and other key personnel for the project, explaining this Tool and how the process works.

Indirect Cost Rate Forms and Information
- Indirect Cost Instructions
The EDA has entered into a working relationship with the U.S. Department of the Interior, Interior Business Center (IBC) to issue indirect cost rates to organizations for which EDA is the cognizant agency for indirect costs. Effective August 1, 2017, the Office of Indirect Cost Services for IBC (IBC/ICS) will collect the required documents, negotiate, issue and countersign indirect rate agreements for your organization. For organizations for whom EDA is their cognizant agency, there is updated guidance on what this means, how this impacts your organization, and who you can reach out to with any questions. Read the Indirect Cost Instructions (updated 7/13/18) (PDF).
