EDA FY23 Distressed Area Recompete Pilot Program Phase 1. Due 10/5/2023.

Opportunity Title:

FY 2023 Distressed Area Recompete Pilot Program Phase 1

Opportunity Number:



The Distressed Area Recompete Pilot Program (Recompete Pilot Program) aims to alleviate persistent economic distress and support long-term, comprehensive economic development and job creation in places with a high prime-age (25 to 54 years) employment gap. The program uses prime-age employment gap (PAEG) as an indicator of economic distress because it accounts for prime-age workers who have stopped looking for jobs and left the labor force, not just those who are currently unemployed. In the execution of this goal, EDA will seek to invest in programs and organizations that have a clear understanding of local conditions and pathways to create and connect people with good jobs while ensuring the program’s benefits are shared equitably and across diverse geographies. EDA’s longstanding mission is to ensure that all communities have a path to economic prosperity, and through the pilot program EDA will support communities with high prime-age employment gaps through flexible, bottom-up strategy and implementation grants that tackle the unique challenges these communities face.


Eligible applicants under this NOFO include: (i) a unit of local government; (ii) the District of Columbia; (iii) a territory of the United States; (iv) a Tribal government; (v) political subdivisions of a State or other entity, including a special-purpose entity engaged in economic development activities; (vi) a public entity or nonprofit organization, acting in cooperation with the officials of a political subdivision of a State or other entity described in (v); (vii) an economic development district; and (viii) a coalition of any of the above entities that serve or are contained within an eligible geographic area.
