Federal Funding Support for ECD Initiatives


TNECD administers grants from three federal funding partners: the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), the Delta Regional Authority (DRA), and Housing and Urban Development through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. TNECD strives to leverage these dollars with state and local funds to support business development projects that create jobs and leverage private investment. TNECD also explores opportunities for federal program funds to support other ECD initiatives, such as improvements to broadband access, workforce development initiatives, commercial façade improvements and microenterprise grant assistance.
