The EDA was established under the Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965 (PWEDA) to generate private sector jobs, retain existing jobs, and stimulate commercial growth in the United States. Assistance from EDA is targeted toward communities that have high unemployment, low income, or other severe economic distress. Projects supported and funded through the Agency are to aid in the creation of sustainable private sector jobs and the creation of a community economic environment that will support those jobs.
The Business & Economic Department of Central Council Tlingit & Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska is asking that those Tribes and communities in the Southeast who have projects and programs funded by EDA and its programs to submit their comments. Respondents are asked to include in their correspondence success stories made possible by EDA support and funding, or concerns about EDA programs. The continuation of funding and support from EDA to communities is at stake according to the news release.
