EDA Disaster Recovery Grant Funds Now Available

FY 2019 Economic Development Administration Disaster Supplemental Notice of Funding Opportunity

The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) has published the FY 2019 EDA Disaster Supplemental Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) on grants.gov.

U.S. EDA has approximately $587 million in FY19 supplemental appropriations available for disaster recovery grants. The funds will be available to eligible grantees in communities impacted by Presidentially declared major natural disasters in 2018, including Hurricanes Florence, Michael, and Lane, Typhoons Yutu and Mangkhut, wildfires, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes, as well as those impacted by floods and tornadoes in 2019.

The following counties and the jurisdictions within are eligible to apply for these grant funds under the federal disaster declarations for Hurricanes Florence and Michael – Durham, Chatham, Orange, Lee, Moore, and Johnston.

The submission of applications should be based on long-term, regionally-oriented, and collaborative development strategies that foster economic growth and resilience. Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis as long as funding is available, so communities are encouraged to submit their applications promptly. Disaster recovery projects must be consistent with the U.S. Department of Commerce Disaster Recovery Investment Priorities.
