University Center Economic Development Program Competition
Last week, The U.S. Commerce Department's Economic Development Administration (EDA) announced its FY 2011 University Center Economic Development Program competition to promote bottom-up regional strategies that help foster business expansion and job creation in EDA's Chicago and Philadelphia regions.
Accredited institutions of higher education, including community colleges, or a consortium of accredited institutions of higher education are eligible to apply for funding. EDA will make awards of approximately $1.1 million in the Chicago region and $1.4 million in the Philadelphia region. Annual awards for the University Centers selected in past years generally have been in the range of $80,000 to $200,000.
The Federal Funding Opportunity deadline is June 30, 2011.
