The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) welcomes public input and perspectives on the planning and design of the Distressed Area Recompete Pilot Program (Recompete Pilot Program).

The program is an economic development initiative that will provide grant funding to distressed communities across the country to create and connect workers to good jobs and support long-term comprehensive economic development by helping to reduce the high, prime-age (25 to 54 years of age) employment gap.

Today, EDA published a Request for Information (RFI) on the Recompete Pilot Program in the Federal Register to solicit public input about the program’s planning and design. EDA welcomes all responses that stakeholders believe will support development of a strong Recompete Pilot Program.

This is the second RFI recently issued by EDA. Last week, EDA published an RFI on the Tech Hubs program, soliciting public input on that program’s design, structure, and evaluation.

The Tech Hubs program will help U.S. regions build and evolve into centers of innovation. It seeks to support key technologies and industries of the future, strengthen U.S. economic and national security, and ensure that industries of the future start, grow, and remain in the United States.
