Historic Impact

The Urban Institute, a nonprofit research organization, received an EDA grant on October 1, 2018. This research, funded in FY2019 and running through FY2023, examined EDA’s funding allocations and grantmaking programs, the agency’s history and goals, the attributes of communities receiving EDA investments, and the extent to which EDA investments spur local economic growth.

EDA collects and reports on performance measures in compliance with Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 that, as amended by the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010, establishes requirements for all agencies to collect, analyze, and report on their performance. EDA’s performance goals and specific performance metrics are tied to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s performance management structure, and performance targets are tied to EDA’s annual budget request and appropriations.
