The American Rescue Plan, signed into law in March of 2021, was meant to “enable all Americans to respond to and recover from the impacts of COVID-19.”

A significant part of that $3 billion investment went to the EDA, or Economic Development Administration. The EDA then designed a number of competitive grant programs to help build a more resilient economy.
