EDA Partners with New Growth Innovation Network to Explore Inclusive Growth Strategies
The Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) Research and National Technical Assistance program awarded a $900,000 CARES Act Recovery Assistance grant to the New Growth Innovation Network (NGIN) and sub-awardee, the National Association of Development Organizations Research Foundation (NADO RF). This project will focus on incorporating inclusive economic recovery actions into regional economic strategies through the development of a National Community of Practice and partnership with six Economic Development Districts (EDDs).
“The unprecedented changes witnessed in the American economy over the last 12 months requires us to examine adaptive approaches to economic development to ensure that no segment of society is left behind,” said Dennis Alvord, Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development. “We’re excited to explore how inclusive growth strategies can help solve some of the economic challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic.”
