Webinar: Building Disaster Resilient Economies - How the Economic Development Administration Can Assist in Post-Disaster Economic Recovery

During 2011, a record number of natural disasters swept through the country - causing loss of life, property damage as well as significant economic damage in many communities. If your community was affected by a natural disaster in 2011, it may be eligible for new federal funding from EDA.  

On January 26th , the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) in collaboration with the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO), the International Economic Development Council (IEDC), and the Business Civic Leadership Center (BCLC), will hold a webinar to showcase successful EDA-funded projects focused on post-disaster economic recovery.

In the coming months, EDA is expected to announce the new federal funding opportunity to support long-term economic recovery efforts from disasters in 2011. The webinar will also provide some preliminary guidance on funding priorities and requirements associated with the new federal funding opportunity.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:
•    identify critical economic recovery priorities and projects for your community
•    leverage EDA funds to secure other sources of financing
•    successfully implement these projects to ensure long-term sustainability and community resiliency

Registration is limited, so please register today.
