PLANNING FOR A RESILIENT FUTURE Statewide Planning, Research & Networks

Building back better means investing in projects that will promote equity and develop local economies that will be resilient to future economic shocks and climate change.

Through the Statewide Planning, Research & Networks program, EDA is supporting states in planning efforts by allocating $59 million for Statewide Planning Grants.

In addition, the program will allocate $31 million for Research and Networks Grants to invest in research that assesses the effectiveness of EDA’s programs, and provides support for stakeholder communities around key EDA initiatives.
