EDA at Work

Investing in American Communities

Since 1965, the Economic Development Administration (EDA) has helped towns, cities, and regions across the United States boost job growth and innovation, build resilience and capacity, recover from natural disasters, and promote long-term prosperity.

Through locally driven projects, EDA works with communities to renew the economic promise of underserved places.

This pairing of federal resources and expertise with local investment and insight can ignite catalytic change. These are the stories of those partnerships. This is EDA at work.
